Harrisonburg, VA (Sports Network) - Devon Moore and Rayshawn Goins both scored
14 points to help guide the James Madison Dukes to a 51-43 win over the Drexel

a point shy of a double-double was Taylor Bessick who collected a game-high 13
rebounds on the day.
The Dragons (5-11, 1-3) were paced by Frantz Massenat who tallied 13 points,
but shot just 4-of-15 from the floor as the visitors suffered a third
Drexel led for a moment early in the first half, but the team ended up
shooting only 7-of-22 from the floor in the period which left it with a 27-19
deficit at the break.
