Very proud of Brett Johnson. Not bad for a walk-on who sat most of his first 2 years in the program, but who now is a big bat in the middle of the lineup. Good luck to him and the Diamond Dukes this spring.

Johnson's a big boy. Usual first baseman build. Evans has some size too and a lefty. Looking forward to seeing more of Dukes baseball this spring.

The game at defending national champion, Coastal Carolina, on Sunday, Feb. 19 (1pm), will be streamed live per the CCU Athletics web page. However, I don't know whether it will be free or PPV.

CCU is preseason #11 in the nation...well, in one poll. College baseball has about 2,814 polls I believe. :>)

Talk about disrespect to ccu. You win the national title and they can't even be bothered to rank you in the top 10 preseason rankings the following season.

That was a pretty big upset if I recall. I mean, generally if the CWS is not won by a Power-5 conference team of a Cal-State system team, it's an upset right?

Who would-a thought Softball and Women's basketball would garner more interest than Baseball and Mens' basketball?

Would not of believed that 20 years ago......

Proof positive that everyone loves a winner, amirite?

I'm on the "I like Ike" bus though. Confident he'll get the baseball program trending up again.

To be fair, the men's basketball team hasn't been good in over 20 years, so the basketball part wouldn't have been a surprise to me.
Baseball on the other hand is a shocker to me. At least they seem to be moving in the right direction.

We also support our women's programs better than most fan bases do. I believe that's part of what makes JMU's culture great. The school being 60% female may be part of it too.

I'm feeling the same thing. After seeing the growth of the team over the 2016 season, and the solid run in the CAA tournament, I think Bourne nailed this hire as well. We will see if his recruits can help the program make another leap this year. They are picked to finish 6th in the conference, but I think we could finish top 4. Call me an optimist, but I love me some Dukes!
