Dukes get much-needed win over Tribe

HARRISONBURG, VA (WWBT) - The basketball season has not gone the way either James Madison or William & Mary envisioned it.  The Dukes have opened CAA play 2-7, and the Tribe have just four wins total.  The good news Thursday night, is that someone had to win.

Andrey Semenov scored 15 points and A.J. Davis added 14 for James Madison in a 59-47 win over William & Mary Thursday night.
 
Neither team shot well, but the Dukes held a 38.5 percent (20 of 52) to 29.8 percent (14 of 47) edge over the Tribe from the floor.
 
The teams were very close the entire way, with the Tribe holding a 34-33 lead with just less than 14 minutes left after Brandon Britt sank a pair of foul shots. But Semenov hit a mid-range jumper and sank a 3-pointer, helping the Dukes (10-11, 3-7 Colonial Athletic Conference) put together a game-altering 10-0 run from that juncture.
 
James Madison led the rest of the way, outscoring William & Mary 35-25 in the second half to seal it. The Dukes led 24-22 at halftime.
 
Britt paced William & Mary (4-18, 2-8) with 14 points, and Tim Rusthoven had 10.
