    DAYTON, Ohio ó A.J. Davis, who stepped in as a starter because James Madisonís leading scorer was suspended for a half, led the way with 20 points as the Dukes beat LIU Brooklyn 68-55 on Wednesday night in the First Four.

    The Dukes (21-14) advance to meet top-seeded Indiana (27-6) on Friday night at the same University of Dayton Arena.

    James Madison was without suspended starter Rayshawn Goins for the first half but built a big lead. After the Blackbirds (20-14) battled back to take a brief lead, the Dukes surged again to win going away.

    Charles Cooke added 15 points and Andre Nation 14 for the Dukes, who hadnít won an NCAA tournament game since 1983 and hadnít played in the big dance in 19 years.

    Jamal Olasewere had 20 points and 10 rebounds and C.J. Garner 16 points for the Blackbirds, who have lost in their first game in each of their six trips to the tournament.
