JMU's Evans gets WNBA contract

Dawn Evans is WNBA bound at last.

The CAA Player of the Year in 2011, who led James Madison to back-to-back conference championships, signed a training camp contract with the Connecticut Sun.

Evans is currently playing in Vienna, Austria for the Flying Foxes and averaging 10.2 points through six games.

Sun coach Mike Thibault told the Hartford Courant, "Coming out of college, Dawn was considered one of the most talented players in the draft class. However she had a number of medical issues that needed to be addressed and went un-drafted. She has addressed those issues and we felt, based on talent, that she would be a great addition to our training camp. Dawn can play both guard positions and will compete for one of the last few spots on our team."

Congrats, Dawn!
