After a closely contested first half, JMU took a 29-25 lead into the intermission. The Dukes shot 37 percent from the floor and converted 7-of-10 attempts at the charity stripe while limiting Delaware to 26.9 percent efficiency from the field in the opening 20 minutes.

The Blue Hens heated up to connect on 43.3 percent of their field goal attempts in the second stanza. Delaware used a 10-0 run to take a 51-46 lead and held a 57-51 advantage with 2:54 left to play.
