Dawn Evans is on the move again.
Less than two months after signing a deal to play professionally in Austria, Jenkins signed to a training camp deal with the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun, the team confirmed in a statement Friday.
The 5-7 Evans, who led James Madison to the Colonial Athletic Association title in both 2010 and 2011, is the Dukes all-time leader in four different statistical categories, including points, free throws, three point shots made and three point shots attempted. She also holds CAA records for career points and three pointers made and attempted.
Evans was named CAA Player of the Year in 2011, as well as All-CAA First Team and Tournament Most Outstanding Player. She was an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American as a junior in 2010 as well as both an Associated Press and WBCA State Farm Honorable Mention All-American in 2011 as a senior. Evans ranked in the top five in scoring in the nation in her sophomore, junior and senior seasons.
During her six-game stint with the Flying Foxes of the Austrian Basketball League, Evans averaged 10.2 points.
Coming out of college, Dawn was considered one of the most talented players in the draft class, Sun head coach Mike Thibault said in a statement. 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.
