HARRISONBURG, Va., July 16, 2012 -- Former
James Madison All-America basketball player Dawn Evans (Clarksville, Tenn./Northeast) has been honored for her
play for the U.S. All-Star Team in its recent series of games in China.
Evans was named the team's Most Valuable Player for its series of games vs. the
China National "B" Team.
According to NetScouts Basketball, which coordinated the tour, Evans "gave up her scoring to run
the point and lead the USA to two wins (in three games) against the Chinese
National "B" Team. Her numbers
in the final three games don't do her justice. Evans scored over 2,500 points in her college
career but showed the ability to lead to team from the point and let her
offensive abilities be secondary."
The former Dukes' point guard averaged 6.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists
and 1.3 steals.
was part of a 12-member team that also played a three-game series against the
China National Team during the tour.
Evans led JMU to the Colonial Athletic Association title in both 2010 and 2011
and is the Dukes' and the CAA's all-time leading scorer (2,667 points). She was the 2011 CAA Player of the Year and the
2011 CAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player. Evans earned Associated Press All-America
Honorable Mention in 2010 and 2011.
Earlier this year Evans played in Vienna, Austria, for the Flying Foxes and
signed a training camp contract with the Women's National Basketball
Association's Connecticut Sun. She
trained with the Sun in April and May but was not selected for the Sun's 2012
