James Madison earned the CAA automatic bid last season on the backs of four seniors in the primary rotation and was able to knock off Long Island in an NCAA tournament play-in game. Coach Matt Brady's squad will have a tough time duplicating that success in 2013-14, as those graduating seniors were JMU's leaders in usage, effective field goal percentage, rebounding percentage (on both ends of the court), assist rate and free throw rate.
