DAYTON, Ohio -- For the second time in as many games, Devin Harris set a career-high with 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Jacksonville held off Fairfield 92-84 in a Wright State Tournament game on Friday.
On Nov. 20, Harris scored 23 points -- then a career high -- and grabbed 11 boards in an 88-70 win over NAIA-member Webber. Half his points Friday were from the free throw line and he shot 12 for 17 from the stripe. The 6-foot-4 guard grabbed all 10 boards on the defensive end.
Jacksonville (2-3) built a 58-37 halftime on the strength of 22-for-34 shooting (64.7 percent) before cooling off after the break. The Dolphins were 10 for 16 from 3-point range in the first half and 1 for 4 the rest of the way.
Fairfield (2-2) got a 3 from Jesus Cruz to whittle its deficit to 86-82 with 1:41 remaining, but Harris converted 4 of 6 free throws from there to seal the win.
