The James Madison Dukes have been to the NCAA Tournament five times in school history, the most recent in 2013. The Dukes have played in the NIT five times, all between 1987 and 1993. The Dukes have been to the CBI in 2011 and the CIT twice (2009 and 2015). Will the Dukes get to the postseason back to back years? Come out to the James Madison University Convocation Center and find out.
The JMU Convocation Center opened in 1982 and seats over 7,000 fans. Bring a seat cushion with you because this is old school basketball here on wooden bleachers. All the seats are close to the court so you will have a great view of the action. Don’t forget to hit the concession stands for your favorite items such as pizza, popcorn, nachos, pretzels, hot dogs and barbecue sandwiches along with Coke products as you enjoy the game.
JMU is part of the Colonial Athletic Association which includes teams such as College of Charleston, Delaware, Drexel, Elon, Hofstra, Towson, Northeastern, UNC Wilmington, and William & Mary. These teams will all be coming to JMU Convocation Center this season. The winner of the CAA postseason tournament will earn the automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament while the regular season champ will earn a berth to one of the other tournaments.
