Dukes ready for first home game in nearly one month

By  | 

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- The James Madison men's basketball team is preparing to host UNCW in what will be the Dukes first home since December 4. The Dukes and Seahawks will meet Thursday night in Harrisonburg.

JMU is hoping a return to the Convocation Center will help the Dukes get back into the win column. James Madison has lost its last four games, all of them coming on the road.

"We have played some inconsistent basketball," said head coach Louis Rowe. "I want to play a good game in front of this home crowd."

"Whoever comes out to watch I think they deserve it and I think we owe it to them."

James Madison has played well at home this season. The Dukes are 4-1 in Harrisonburg while scoring more than 80 points per game. Meanwhile, the Dukes have struggled away from their own court. The Dukes are 3-7 in road/neutral site games.

Tip-off against UNCW is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday night at the Convocation Center.
