GAME NOTES: The Richmond Spiders aim for their third straight win when they tangle with in-state rival James Madison on Saturday evening.

The Spiders are combing off wins against Fairfield and Air Force. On Wednesday, Terry Allen had 19 points and seven rebounds as Richmond easily defeated the Falcons, 83-60. Kendall Anthony also scored 19 points on 6-of-9 field goal shooting for the Spiders. Cedrick Lindsay chipped in 16 points and dished out nine assists as well.

Richmond is led by the senior Lindsay, who is averaging 18.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per outing. Terry Allen, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, is averaging 11.6 points and a team-best 7.4 rebounds per game. The other double-digit scorer comes off the bench in junior guard Kendall Anthony (11.4 ppg), who is third on Richmond's 3-point percentage career list at .413. Sophomore Alonzo Nelson Ododa blocked four shots against Air Force. He has 77 blocks for his career, which is only seven shy from tying Johnny Newman for 10th on the school's all-time list. The Spiders are averaging 70.9 points, but giving up 65.1 per contest.

James Madison is on a long road trip. The lone home game for the Dukes came on Nov. 19, a 71-67 loss to Detroit. Since then, the Dukes have lost games at Valparaiso and Winthrop. The most recent defeat came on Wednesday to the Eagles, 69-57. Jackson Kent had 16 points an Ron Curry scored 15. Charles Cooke registered 12 points and nine rebounds. Kent became the team's sixth leading scorer in seven contests.

Cooke leads the Dukes with 12.9 points per game, but he is shooting just 5- of-23 from 3-point range. Andrey Semenov (11.6 ppg) and Curry (11.2 ppg) are also in double figures. Semenov, a 6-foot-7 graduate forward, missed the Valparaiso and Winthrop games due to injury. James Madison is averaging just 59.9 ppg, while giving up 68.6 ppg.

The Dukes came back from a six-point deficit last season against the Spiders, but eventually lost 83-82 in overtime. Richmond has thrived at home against none-conference teams, winning 40 of its last 46 such games. JMU, the defending CAA champions, is just 5-17 all-time at the Robins Center.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Richmond 71, James Madison 57
