James Madison limited Charleston’s offense. The Cougars score an average of 79 points per game shooting 42% but were held to 55 points this afternoon shooting 28%. The Dukes had 15 more offensive rebounds than the Cougars and scored 10 more points in the paint. JMU was nearly perfect from the free-throw line, hitting 17 of 18.
