JMU football has had a lot of attention the past few months, but we can’t ignore our men’s basketball team! Not only are basketball games free to attend, but all you need is your JAC card to enter.
The men’s basketball team has an 8-21 record, with an average of 66.1 points per game. We have an above average field goal percentage at .445, and 34.1 rebounds per game. Also, the players on our team are as impressive as ever. Although they each have had stellar seasons so far, here are a few of the notable accomplishments of our men’s players.
Number 10 Jackson Kent, who has started every game this year, leads the Dukes in scoring (14.4 points per game) and CAA scoring (17 points per game). He also scored his 1,000th career points in our 1/12/2017 loss to College of Charleston.
Number 4 Joey McLean has started every game for the Dukes, and has scored double digits in 14/25 games. He leads the Dukes in assists and paces JMU with 32 steals on the season.
Number 25, Ramone Snowden, has played in all 25 Games and made a season high of eight rebounds in the game against Delaware. He also tallied the third most assists of the JMU season with 45.
Number 13, Paulius Satkus, averaged 11.9 points per game, the second highest on our team, while also making the Dean’s List last semester. Satkus shot 58.5% from the floor since the start of CAA play.
The men’s team never fails to put their all in each game and it’s always a blast to attend and support the dukes. I recommend taking a look at our team roster to see our impressive lineup, and also check out the schedule for the rest of the season.
