WASHINGTON (AP) Marcus Sheffield II scored 10 points and the game-winning jumper with three seconds left and seventh-seeded Elon came from behind to beat No. 10 James Madison 63-61 in Saturday's first round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament.

The Phoenix (12-20) advance to Sunday's quarterfinal against No. 2 William & Mary (21-10).
