Former Warren Wilson star's jersey on display in Women's Basketball Hall of Fame

Special to Black Mountain News
The jersey of former Warren Wilson College standout Danasia Dumas (10) is featured in the Ring of Honor exhibit at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville.

It's been nearly six months since Danasia Dumas put on her number 10 jersey for the Warren Wilson College women's basketball team for the final time, but the accolades for the Swannanoa school's all-time leading scorer continue to come in. 

Dumas, a four-time All-American who scored over 2,000 career points for the Owls, is one of over 100 players to have their jerseys featured in the Ring of Honor display in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tennessee. 

The exhibit is designed to recognize the achievements of young basketball players and their contributions to the sport.

Dumas, a native of Mount Gilead who eclipsed the 1,500-point mark for her career at West Montgomery High School, wasted no time making her mark at Warren Wilson. She picked up her 1,000th career point for the Owls as a sophomore. 

Surrounded by friends, family and supporters, Danasia "Piggy" Dumas receives a ball commemorating her 2,000 career points before the first game of her senior season against Montreat College on Oct. 27.

The athletic guard picked up her 2,000th point for the Owls as a junior. 

Dumas led the Owls to a program-record 17 wins as a freshman before matching that mark as a sophomore. Warren Wilson notched a 20-8 mark in her junior season of 2017-18. 

Dumas finished her career with 2,509 points in 110 games for the Owls.
