Harrisonburg, VA (Sports Network) - Rayshawn Goins went 7-of-13 from the field for a game-high 18 points as the James Madison Dukes coasted to a 78-50 decision over the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks in a Colonial Athletic Association bout at the Convocation Center.

Keith Rendleman paced UNCW (5-10, 0-3) with 17 points while Cedrick Williams pulled down a team-best eight boards. The setback was the fourth in a row for the Seahawks, who are still winless in league action after three games.
