From NetScouts Basketball Reports

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.

Evans (JMU '11) 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 roster.
