UNIVERSITY PARK, Fla. -- Stuckey Mosley scored 23 of his 28 points in the second half and Darius Banks added 16 points to propel James Madison to a 76-67 victory over Florida International on Saturday night.
Stuckey knocked down 4 of 6 from 3-point range and made all 10 of his free throws for the Dukes (4-8), who snapped a two-game skid. Banks connected on 7 of 10 shots and Stuckey made half of his 14 shots, but the rest of the Dukes hit just 9 of 27 (33 percent) from the floor.
Reserve Willy Nunez Jr. hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 to pace the Panthers (5-6), who began a season-long six-game homestand. Hassan Hussein added 17 points and seven rebounds, Brian Beard Jr. chipped in with 10 points and seven assists and Eric Lockett scored 10.
James Madison led 35-24 but Trejon Jacob scored four in a 5-0 run and FIU trailed 35-29 at halftime. Hussein scored six in an 8-2 spurt that left the Panthers leading 41-37 early in the second half. Nunez hit four 3s over a span of 4:29 and FIU led 53-51 with 8:47 to play. But Mosley took over from there, scoring seven in a 9-0 spurt that put the Dukes on top for good.
