Women’s basketball falls short against JMU
For a sizable portion of the afternoon, it seemed as if the VCU women’s basketball team was playing catch up.
Lost footing and fumbled passes created turnover after turnover, which allowed James Madison to grab the upper hand in nearly every aspect of the game. And when opportunities finally surfaced for the Rams, they weren’t seized and eventually led to a dispiriting 65-64 loss to the Dukes in front of the Siegel Center’s largest crowd of the season.
The women’s basketball team (12-8, 5-4 CAA) split a pair of games at home this past week. The Rams fell to Drexel 47-41 as Sr. Courtney Hurt became VCU’s all-time leading scorer with 1,755 career points Thursday, breaking a 22-year-old record. VCU topped Georgia State 75-70 Sunday behind a 28-point 20-rebound effort from Hurt. The Rams are sixth in the CAA standings and play ninth place Towson Thursday.
