 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -Matt Janning scored 13 points and led five players in double figures as Northeastern beat James Madison 73-55 in the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament on Friday night.
The Huskies (14-16) advanced to meet George Mason in Saturday's quarterfinals, while the Dukes (13-17) saw the four-year coaching career of Dean Keener come to an end. Kenner announced last month that he was resigning at the end of the season.
The Huskies used a 17-5 run in the last 5:54 of the first half to open a 38-25 halftime lead. James Madison got within 49-46 with 9:48 left, but managed just three field goals the rest of the way as the Huskies expanded their lead to as many as 20.
Manny Adako added 12 points, Chaisson Allen had 11 and Eugene Spates and Baptiste Bataille each scored 10 for the Huskies.
Terrance Carter led James Madison with 15 points. Pierre Curtis added 12 and Abdulai Jalloh had 10.
