Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - A.J. Davis scored a game-high 18 points off the bench to help the James Madison Dukes overcome a double-digit second-half deficit to defeat the San Jose State Spartans, 77-68, as part of the Vegas Holiday Hoops event at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Rayshawn Goins tallied 13 points and nine rebounds for JMU (5-6), while Devon Moore added 12 points and seven assists. Charles Cooke netted 11 points for the Dukes, who have won four of their last five.

The Dukes' fortunes changed in a hurry after the break, as they were able to sprint past SJSU in the second half by draining an astounding 18-of-23 field goal attempts (.783), including all seven of its shots from 3-point range.
