    HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Jonathan Lee and Quincy Ford scored 20 points each to lead Northeastern past James Madison 68-56 on Saturday.

    The Huskies (5-9, 1/3 Colonial Athletic Association) held their fourth opponent out of their last five to 56 or fewer points, and won for the third time in their last four games.

    Northeastern led 53-50 with 4:22 remaining, and went on a 12-4 run to blow it open. Ford emphatically ended the spurt on a dunk with 45 seconds left.

    Northeastern shot 49 percent from the field (25 of 50), including 7 of 16 form 3-point range. The Dukes (7-7, 1-3) managed just 11.1 percent from long range (1 of 9).

    A.J. Davis led James Madison with 14 points and Devon Moore and Enoch Hood added 11 each.

    The Dukes outrebounded Northeastern 31-26, but turned it over 14 times leading to 21 points, in their third straight loss.
