Here are some quotes from players that I've seen or received.....



Some other former players quotes:

- "I'm Glad Someone finally spoke up"

- "We all had the same experiences here at VCU as those Texas Tech Players"

This one player had a lot to say

- "Jesus, I'm not surprised.... to be honest she was absolutely manipulative and if she didn't like you, you knew. I've had multiple encounters with her where I felt like that. I also trained so much cuz she wanted me to be perfect. I got myself sick. She kept telling me, I had to lose weight and sustain 40 min. When I hurt my ankle, the doctor even said I needed surgery, she made me play out the season. I got the surgery when I transferred"

"She withheld my transfer for longer than legally allowed. I had to go above her head to get them signed. Dawkins hated me by the way, she would curse at me & berate me every practice."

"You don't even realize it's happening until you're already depressed. I relate hard to that article. I watched her ruin a lot of us on the court. Shes great with fundamentals of the game, but I've always said she was a $#!t person."

" I had no idea she would do that.... I’m not sure how she isn’t fired . I lost my passion after season 1 with her. That summer she had moved me to a separate dorm away from the girls so that I could focus and get better with no distractions "

" OH S#!t That game I scored 30 and had 9 threes or however many.. she pulled me out so I wouldn’t break her record which was one more... "

Other things I've heard from former players today-
"Told me she couldn’t eat certain things because it would affect her performance. Said things about her body "

Another Player said " Coach Dawkins would hit her with her bare hands during practices"

Also a former staff member of hers said this.....
" Its not a surprise to me at all. She was the same way at VCU. That's how she climbed the ladder. She was a self-admitted "ladder climber" and would do anything to win a game, even putting players at risk and making them and staff feel less than. Serial abuser. "
