Hofstra 95, James Madison 88 (3 OTs)

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Loren Stokes scored a career-high 30
points and Hofstra won the first triple-overtime game in school
history, beating James Madison 95-88 on Wednesday night.

Mike Radziejewski had 21 points for the Pride (15-7, 7-6
Colonial Athletic Association).

Jomo Belfor had 24 points for the Dukes (4-17, 2-11), while
Cavell Johnson added 21 points and 15 rebounds.

Four free throws by Wendell Gibson opened scoring in the third
overtime, giving the Pride an 88-84 lead with 3:04 left. Johnson's
jumper got James Madison with two points about 30 seconds later,
but Hofstra scored the next five points, three from freshman
Antoine Agudio, to go up 92-86.

Belfor made two free throws with 23 seconds to play in
regulation to send the game to overtime tied at 62. Adrian Uter of
Hofstra, a 47 percent free throw shooter, went 1-for-2 from the
line with 37 seconds remaining in the first overtime to tie the
game at 71-71. Radziejewski's jumper with 26 seconds left in the
second overtime made it 80-80.
