Harrisonburg, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ron Curry scored a game-high 20 points and handed out six assists as the James Madison Dukes posted a 59-53 win over the Hofstra Pride in a Colonial Athletic Association contest at the JMU Convocation Center.

Charles Cooke added 15 points, eight rebounds and three steals for the Dukes (9-16, 4-7 CAA), followed by Andre Nation with 13 points off the bench as the team snapped a three-game slide.

The Pride (8-18, 4-7) were paced by Zeke Upshaw with 15 points, while Dion Nesmith and Jamall Robinson both contributed 10 points and six boards as the team bowed for the sixth time in the last seven outings.
