Can anyone explain why James Madison point guard Dawn Evans is not one of the eight finalists (she didn't even make the buzz list) for the Nancy Lieberman Award? Evans is fourth in the NCAA in scoring (25.5 ppg) and No. 1 nationally in 3-pointers per game. Twice she has scored 38 points in games this season (including in Charlottesville when JMU upset Virginia). She had 28 on Sunday with seven assists versus ODU.
The award recognizes a point guard for floor leadership, play making ability and ball handling. Sounds an awful lot like Evans, a five-time CAA Player of the Week, to us.
