VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Jordan Coleman scored 16 points as hot-shooting Valparaiso defeated James Madison 81-49 on Saturday.
The Crusaders (3-3) hit 58 percent from the field and placed four scorers in double figures. LaVonte Dority and Alec Peters scored 15 each and Lexus Williams added 12 points. The win matches Valparaiso's largest margin of victory over a Division I school since beating Toledo by the same score 81-49 in 2009.
James Madison (2-4) held the lead early until Dority put Valparaiso ahead for good, 20-18, at the 9:40 mark of the first half. His 3-pointer capped an 8-4 swing in which the Dukes missed two shots and committed two turnovers.
The teams were tied twice and exchanged the lead four times up until that point.
