Recap: James Madison vs. UNC-Wilmington

Harrisonburg, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ron Curry scored 13 points and grabbed a game-high eight rebounds, and his jumper with 32 seconds to play in regulation lifted the James Madison Dukes to a 64-62 win over the UNC Wilmington Seahawks in Colonial Athletic Association action at the JMU Convocation Center.

Andrey Semenov led all scorers with 18 points for the Dukes (10-17, 5-8 CAA), who entered the day with losses in four of their previous five contests. Charles Cooke and Andre Nation chipped in with 10 points apiece in the win.

The Seahawks (8-20, 2-11) came up just short in their bid for their second three-game win streak of the season. Tanner Milson was the team's only double- digit scorer on the day as he finished with 11 points.

The first half featured three ties and seven lead changes, although it was JMU that claimed a 34-26 halftime lead after holding UNCW to 35.7-percent shooting from the floor in the opening frame.

JMU stretched its lead to 13 early in the second stanza, but the Seahawks managed to hang around as they went on to drain five second-half 3-pointers. Following Curry's go-ahead jumper late in regulation, Milson missed a potential game-winning three in the final seconds at the other end, and teammate Shane Reybold could not get the putback to fall before the final buzzer.

With the victory, JMU swept the regular-season series with UNCW and has now won eight of the last 10 meetings.
