Rising senior Vernessa Neamo is the only person who ranks in the top 16 GMU women's basketball career leaders in points, rebounds, blocked shots, assists, steals, & 3-pt. FG's:
Points - 16th (940)
Rebounds - 11th (584)
Blocked shots - 7th (61)
Assists - 16th (157)
Steals - 4th (186)
3-pt. FG's - 15th (22)
Vernessa has a good shot at breaking Assistant Coach Marcell Harrison's career record for steals (237).

Neamo will most likely pass her coaches record this year. She is 51 behind and if she just has just as many steals as last season she will pass coach's record by 17 steals. She is soo good at getting her hands out there and breaking up passing lanes and just disrupting the point guard or whoever she is guarding game. She is going to be the backbone of this team with the great guard play of The Jens!!!
Another point is that Jen Derevjanik has a shot at breaking the all time scoring leader Keri Chaconas record of 1,747. It's a LONG shot but she can do it. Last year she scored 413 points and if she does around 450 year she will be at 1,590. She will have to have a KILLER last season to break the record. She sits at 1,140 right now. I'm just hoping she gets up in the Top 3 which she would need just about 15 more points than last season. This season she will just be passing another player after another player.

I don't really care what individual records Dev and Neamo break. I'd much rather see a good season(no more mediocre, underachieving seasons), and they win the CAA title. I'd hope Dev and Neamo think the same way.

Surely, you don't blame Neamo & Jen Dev for the mediocre, underachieving seasons. They are outstanding, team-oriented players. So what's the harm if they set some individual records during their career. George Evans set the GMU career records for blocked shots & steals; became just the 4th player in NCAA history to reach 200 each in steals, assists, & blocked shots; and was the 2nd player in CAA history to win the POY 3 times. And, while excelling individually, he helped lead the Patriots to 2 CAA championships.

No, I don't blame Dev and Neamo for the mediocre seasons. I remember going to many games where Dev and Neamo left in on the court, and no one else showed up. The ladies have lacked consistent post play since Tish Wescott graduated. I'm all for Dev and Neamo re-writing the record books, but I'd also like to see some real team accomplishments too.

Since ODU is still in the conference, depending on how they play, a good season could be second...

I agree 'holic, but I like to think big. I'd be happy w/ a 2nd place finish and a WNIT game for the ladies.
