Milestone win

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- James Madison women's basketball became the third program in the country to reach the 1,000-win mark with a 74-57 victory against UNCW on Tuesday night at the JMU Convocation Center. JMU joins Tennessee and Louisiana Tech as the only programs to reach the elite plateau.

In addition to the 1,000 wins, senior forward Toia Giggetts became the 28th player in program history to score 1,000 points in her career. She accomplished the feat just minutes into the contest, scoring the game's first bucket. Giggetts finished the night with eight points and seven rebounds in 28 minutes of action.

JMU started playing women's basketball in the 1920-21 season and has won seven conference championships and made 10 trips to the NCAA Tournament. Head coach Kenny Brooks, who is the 16th coach in program history, has totaled 292 of the 1,000 victories and sits 10 wins away from tying former coach Shelia Moorman (1982-1997) for the most wins in program history (302).
