Dukes Win In An Empty Arena

26 Jan

Not many fans showed up to tonight's game, but I bet a lot of fans watched it on MadiZone (Courtesy: JMUsports.com)

A lot of people (like me) decided to stay home and watch the game on MadiZone. Glad it was free tonight. Thanks, JMUsports.

Anyway, JMU has had some tough games lately. A loss to ODU, a two-point loss to George Mason, and an overtime loss to Hofstra. JMU has had some serious catching up to do. It would be wise to start now, and they did.

The first half was one of the quickest halves ever. It was as close to 20 minutes as you can get. It was also really low-scoring. The score was stayed really close but JMU never loss the lead. The halftime score was 21-20 JMU. The second half, however, was a different story.

The second half was a see-saw half. The lead would go one way and then, a few minutes later, it would go the other way and then it would go back. JMU might have been losing it at one point, but they stayed strong and got the 60-52 win.

JMU finally got the win they needed after the three game losing streak. Let’s start a new winning streak and come back to the top of the CAA standings.

JMU improves to 16-6 (6-4 CAA)

Denzel Bowles led the team in points with 19 and rebounds with 8.

The next game is Saturday when they play at Delaware.

We had a lot of snow today and, to be honest, I was surprised the game didn’t get cancelled. JMUsports were really nice to have MadiZone free tonight. It was a really empty stadium. I give props to the fans who went through all that snow to show up to the game as well as the band and the cheerleaders.
