RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Spiders’ true freshman Jacob Gilyard passed his first test of finals week with a clutch three pointer to sink in-state foe James Madison 74-71 Sunday evening to end a dreadful six-game losing streak, and provide Richmond its first home win of the 2017 season.

The Richmond Spiders (2-8) got 23 points from Gilyard who played a game-high 39 minutes. James Madison (3-8) outrebounded the Spiders 42-28 and were buoyed by 25 second half points from Stuckey Mosley.
