Recap: San Jose St vs. James Madison

DeKalb, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Taylor Bessick scored 19 points, leading four starters in double figures, as the James Madison Dukes posted a 79-66 win over the San Jose State Spartans as part of the NIU Invitational at the Convocation Center.

Charles Cooke and Tom Vodanovich both tallied 15 points for the Dukes (2-2), followed by Ron Curry with 11, although the latter shot just 2-of-8 from the floor on the afternoon.

The Spartans (0-4) were led by Rashad Muhammad with a 18 points, but he converted only 5-of-16 shots from the field, including 2-of-10 behind the 3- point line as the team remained winless. Dylan Alexander pitched in with 12 points off the bench as well.

San Jose State dug itself a huge hole in the first half as it knocked down just 7-of-27 (.259) from the floor, but the deficit could have been even greater than 41-28 at the break were it not for the team's five conversions out on the perimeter.
