    HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) -- Pierre Curtis had eight of his 19 points from the free-throw line as James Madison beat Delaware 62-47 Wednesday night.

    Curtis sank 8 of 10 free throws and was a perfect 3 of 3 from 3-point range.

    Curtis and Juwann James had back-to-back dunks as James Madison (4-8, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association) opened the second half with a 10-0 run that put the Dukes up 39-22.

    Herb Courtney kept Delaware (2-11, 0-2) in the game over the next six minutes, scoring 11 points to offset a 3-pointer by Curtis and two by Joe Posey.

    The Dukes used free-throw shooting to maintain their lead, with Curtis sinking 6 of 8 in the final six minutes and James Madison only hitting one more field goal -- another 3-pointer by Posey, who finished with four.

    James hit two jumpers and a free throw to give the Dukes an early 5-0 lead. Posey's 3-pointer capped off a 14-4 run that put James Madison up 23-11 with 6:09 remaining in the half. The Blue Hens answered with an 11-6 run to come to within 29-22 at the break.

    James finished with 13 and Posey added 12 for the Dukes, who shot 46.5 percent on the night compared to 35 percent shooting for Delaware.

    Courtney was the only Delaware player scoring in double figures, finishing with 25, including 10 from the free-throw line.
