The Dukes Lose One In The CBI

15 Mar

Well, JMU didn’t make the NIT, however, they did make a championship called the CBI. Now, what the hell is the CBI?

Once again, coming from Michigan, I didn’t know much about the small things like BracketBusters or the CBI.

Anyway, the Dukes made it and their first game is against Davidson. JMU had a great start and a terrible end to this season. So, you would hope that the Dukes would do well here. Well, that didn’t happen.

To tell you the truth, I didn’t really watch a lot of the game. When I first put it on, it was tied 25-25. So, naturally, I assumed they were having that first half struggle that has plagued them for the whole season. So, I didn’t really worry.

I changed the channel and continued searching. Then, I came back a little bit before halftime and it the half ended 44-32 Davidson. I’m wondering what the hell happened.

I came back again during the second half and it was 67-45 and this was mid-second half. So, between the end of the first half and about ten minutes into the second, JMU only scored 13 points.

The final score was 85-65, our worst loss since the Feb. 24th game against Old Dominion (75-59).

We end our season 21-12 overall. It’s not a bad record, but it’s still disappointing when you see how we started.

Devon Moore led the team in points with 14 and Denzel Bowles led the team in rebounds with 9.
