Bidding adieu to 2

While Hofstra has no seniors on its roster, James Madison will graduate Lauren Okafor and Toia Giggetts, two starters who have been instrumental to the success of this season’s team.

Giggetts, battling bad knees,  became a 1,000-point scorer this season, and her 136 games played is third in JMU history. Her cousins, pictured, from Pittsburgh were in the stands at the Show Place Arena on Sunday, cheering on the 6-0 forward from Norfolk, Va. Giggetts, btw, has been wearing a mask since her freshman year when she broke her nose.

Okafor, whose 151 blocks and counting are third in JMU history, is the double-double queen with 13 this season. The 6-3 center from Hamden, Conn., is this year’s Dean Ehlers Leadership Award recipient and earned All-Defensive and All-Academic team honors.
