James Madison will look to continue the momentum from last year’s 29-8 season, in which head coach Kenny Brooks (@CoachBrooksJMU) guided the Dukes to the championship game of the WNIT. The Dukes return four starters, led by All-CAA guard Tarik Hislop. She is the team’s top returning scorer after pouring in 14.8 points per game, while Kirby Burkholder added 11.5 ppg. JMU also welcomes back reigning 2012 CAA Defensive Player of the Year Nikki Newman, who helped the Dukes rank among one of the CAA’s top defensive teams, and Jasmine Gill, who added 9.0 points per game. The Dukes open the 2012-13 season at in-state rival Virginia and will play eight non-conference teams with a 2011-12 RPI of 111 or better, including three in the top 50. Brooks has led the Dukes to the postseason for seven straight seasons, including three trips to the NCAA tournament. Follow James Madison WBB on Twitter @JamesMadisonWBB

Semenov averaged 16.4 ppg and hit 23-of-37 from 3-point range in JMU’s final five regular season games.

Hofstra will look to build off last year’s 19-12 campaign that included a berth in the WNIT. Pride head coach Krista Kilburn-Steveskey (@CoachKSteveskey) returns a pair of senior starters, Shante Evans and Candace Bond. Evans, a two-time All-American and three-time All-CAA honoree, is the Pride’s top returning scorer with 19.2 points per game and rebounder with 10.5 rpg. Over Evans’ three years with Hofstra, she has shot over 50 percent from the field. Bond, who averaged 7.8 ppg and 5.4 rpg last season, completed her junior campaign by pouring in a career-high 18 points against Harvard in the WNIT. Sophomore guard Andreana Thomas (4.2 ppg) will step into the starting spot at point guard as the Pride graduated Candice Bellocchio, who led the league in assists in her final two seasons. The Pride will face nine teams during its non-conference schedule that had a 2011-12 RPI of 126 or better, including five in the top 66. Follow the Pride during the season on Twitter @HofstraWBB

Hofstra slipped to 3-15 in the CAA last season, but seven of those losses were by six points or less. Imes, who missed the final five games last season due to injury, is the Pride’s top returning scorer (7.0 ppg) and rebounder (5.4 rpg). Mejia also battled injuries last season but finished strong, scoring double figures in five of Hofstra’s last seven games. Coombs-McDaniel averaged 5.6 ppg for UConn’s national championship team in 2010-11, while Buie contributed 5.8 ppg in 11 games as a freshman at Penn State.

The Panthers have a veteran nucleus returning as six letterwinners who played in all 30 games a year ago are back. Head coach Sharon Baldwin-Tener will build around junior guard Kendra Long and seniors Cody Paulk and Tiffany Anderson. Long is the team’s top returning scorer after averaging 10.5 points per outing. She also is the first Panther in GSU history to have back-to-back 50 plus three-point seasons. Paulk is one of the league’s top defenders around the basket after ranking second in the CAA with 1.9 blocks per game and just needs 33 more blocks for the GSU school record (166), which would also put her in the CAA top 10. Georgia State will open the season with a pair of road contests including its second outing at Florida, which finished at 36 in the RPI rankings last year. The Panthers will once again host a pair of home tournaments during the non-conference schedule.
