JMU FAST BREAK
• The Dukes won their 10th straight on Friday with a 92-43 victory over visiting UNCW, clinching their ninth consecutive 20+ win season. The 10-game win-streak is their longest in CAA play since a 13-game streak in 2010-11.
• Junior forward Toia Giggetts (Norfolk, VA./Lake Taylor) scored in double digits for the 15th consecutive game when she posted 16 points against the Seahawks, tying sophomore guard Precious Hall (Tallahassee, Fla./Maclay School) for game-high honors. The duo paced six Dukes in double figures. All 10 Dukes who saw action scored, including a career-first made 3-pointer from freshman guard Amani Tatum (Cambria Heights, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy).
• The 49-point margin-of-victory over UNCW was JMU's largest this season and tied for 10th-largest all-time (93-44 vs. Georgia Southern, Dec. 31, 2012). The Dukes are winning CAA games by an average of 30.7 points. They are also the only team to have three players among the top 10 scorers in the conference (3rd-senior guard Kirby Burkholder (Bridgewater, Va./Turner Ashby), 8th-Hall, 10th-Giggetts).
• Through Jan. 9, JMU ranked within the top 10 nationally in six statistical categories: fourth in field-goal percentage defense (34.4%), sixth in three point field goal defense (25.1%), seventh in blocked shots per game (6.0), as well as ninth in rebound margin (+10.5), scoring defense (55.7 PPG), and scoring margin (+19.5).
• JMU is now receiving votes in both major polls after picking up seven points in this week’s USA Today Coaches Poll and staying steady at three points in the latest AP Top 25 poll. At ESPN, the Dukes are up to No. 2 in Graham Hays’ Top 10 Mid-Major schools and a projected No. 7 seed in Charlie Crème’s last Bracketology.
