Recap: James Madison vs. George Washington

Harrisonburg, VA (Sports Network) - Kevin Larsen scored 12 points to help lift the George Washington Colonials to a dramatic 54-53 win over the James Madison Dukes in a hard-fought battle at the JMU Convocation Center.

Larsen shot 5-of-10 from the floor and grabbed nine rebounds for the Colonials (3-3), while Joe McDonald added 12 points with Lasan Kromah tallied 10 points and five assists.

Andre Nation was the only player for James Madison (1-5) to score in double- figures as he recorded 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. Nation also accounted for five steals and four blocked shots in the outing.

The first half came to an end with the two squads tied 24-24 after JMU's Ron Curry hit a jumper at the buzzer to even the score. The visitors made a total of just nine field goals in the period and were 1-of-4 beyond the arc.

The second half was back and forth, but with just over two minutes remaining Patricio Garino hit a three-pointer that put George Washington on top 52-50 and then added a pair of free throws in the final seconds to give the visitors a four-point advantage. A late three-point conversion by Nation cut the lead to just a single point, but that's as close as JMU would get.

The Colonials shot just 38.2 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 16 times, but they earned a 40-28 rebounding edge over the Dukes in the victory.
