    WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Humpty Hitchens had a career-high 27 points and James Madison used a 9-0 run in the final 5 minutes to pull away for a 69-61 win against UNC Wilmington on Wednesday night.

    The win snapped a five-game skid in conference games for James Madison (9-9, 2-5 Colonial Athletic Association). UNC Wilmington (7-10, 3-4) lost its third game in a row.

    The Dukes led by three at the break and built the margin to as large as 11 at 49-38 with 11 minutes remaining. However, the Seahawks stormed back with 11 unanswered points, holding James Madison scoreless for 5:25 seconds while tying the game at 49-49 with 7:50 remaining.

    But a layup by A.J. Davis was followed by a Hitchens three-point play, and Davis' slam and Moore's layup put the Dukes up 61-53 with 2:40 remaining.

    Donte Morales led the Seahawks with 14 points.
