HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP)
Jamelle Hagins scored a career-high 23 points while grabbing 18 rebounds, and sophomore guard Devon Saddler added 22 points as Delaware defeated James Madison 85-80 Saturday in a Colonial Athletic Association game.
Hagins' double-double was his 12th this season for the Blue Hens (11-12, 7-6), and his rebound total was one shy of his career best.
Delaware never trailed, although the Dukes (10-15, 3-10), who got 30 points from A.J. Davis, cut an 11-point first-half deficit to one point, 53-52, with 13:34 remaining.
The Blue Hens quickly built their lead back to 10 points, 62-52, but James Madison whittled it down to one again, 68-67, with 5:25 left.
Jarvis Threatt responded with a three-point play for Delaware and added six more free throws down the stretch.
Threatt finished with 14 points and Kyle Anderson 13 for the Blue Hens.
