Recap: James Madison vs. William & Mary

Harrisonburg, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Thornton scored a game-high 26 points, shooting 6-of-9 behind the 3-point line, as the William & Mary Tribe held on for an 81-79 victory over the James Madison Dukes in Colonial Athletic Association play at the Convocation Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Tribe (13-8, 5-3 CAA) were Tim Rusthoven with 16 points, Brandon Britt 11 and Omar Prewitt 10 points, to go along with five assists, off the bench as the visitors won for the third time in the last four games.

Andrey Semenov converted 5-of-8 shots behind the 3-point line as he finished with 23 points, adding a game-high eight rebounds for the Dukes (8-14, 3-5) as they had a two-game win streak snapped. Andre Nation chipped in 18 points, Charles Cooke 15 and Ron Curry 11 points and a game-high nine assists.

W&M, which won the first meeting of the season between the teams last month at home by 22 points, shot 56.5 percent from the field in the first half, including 9-of-13 beyond the arc, en route to a 41-30 advantage at the break.

In the second half JMU battled back and actually led by a point with just under 14 minutes to play, but down the stretch the Tribe managed to remain in charge with key free-throw conversions.

However, Curry was fouled on 3-point attempt with 2.5 seconds remaining. He knocked down the first two of his chances at the free-throw line to cut the JMU deficit to just two points at 81-79, but he missed the third shot on purpose and a follow-up attempt by the hosts was short at the buzzer.

William & Mary made it into the win column despite being beaten on the glass, 32-25, clearing just three offensive boards, and turning the ball over 15 times on the day.
