Welcome to JMU Women's Basketball. Please click here to complete your online questionnaire. It is an honor for me as an alumnus to be head coach at the university that gave me so much athletically, academically and socially.
JMU is nationally ranked in many categories and with the combination of great people and necessary resources, JMU is truly a unique institution for higher learning. The city of Harrisonburg embraces a community that is committed to JMU athletics. Our on-campus facility, the Convocation Center, is one of the better "home court advantages" in the country and has helped us to a 73-15 home record over the last five seasons.
JMU maintains a rich tradition of academic excellence as shown by a national ranking of 17th on The Kiplinger 100, a listing of schools that offer a first-class education at a reasonable price. JMU also ranked 15th in the nation for being the "most connected campus" and 5th nationally for "great campus food." JMU's College of Business placed among the top 5 percent of business schools, both public and private, in the country.
Our basketball program has an outstanding reputation at the national level. JMU ranks as one of the top four winningest Division I programs in the country. Last year, we went 25-11 and advanced to the WNIT quarterfinals, marking the eighth consecutive year that JMU has competed in postseason competition (NCAA Tournament in 2007, 2010, 2011; WNIT in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013), an accomplishment that no other team in the CAA can claim.
Senior Tarik Hislop finished her career as the all-time leader at JMU in career games played (140), consecutive games played (140), career games started (139) and consecutive career games started (115). She also moved into third on the all-time career-scoring list with 1,847 points in a purple and gold uniform. Freshman Precious Hall also became the sixth player in JMU history to earn CAA Rookie of the Year honors in 2012-13 after leading CAA freshmen in scoring (9.6).
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
