PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mike Lewis II scored 10 of Duquesne’s first 21 points and finished with 16 points, Rene Castro-Caneddy had all 15 of his points in the second half and the Dukes beat North Carolina A&T 74-58 on Sunday for their fifth consecutive victory.

It’s the Dukes’ longest winning streak since 11 straight in 2010-11.

Tarin Smith added 14 points and Eric Williams Jr. grabbed 12 rebounds for Duquesne (7-3). Keith Dambrot is the first Duquesne coach to start his inaugural season 7-3 since John Cinicola in 1974-75.

Lewis completed a 3-point play to put Duquesne ahead 54-39 with 12:13 remaining but the Dukes didn’t make another field goal until Smith’s 3-pointer at the 7:37 mark. N.C. A&T wasn’t able to take advantage as the Aggies also had a long field-goal drought of three-plus minutes.

Duquesne entered having held back-to-back opponents under 50 points for the first time since December 1968. The Aggies topped the mark with 5:48 remaining on a Devonte Boykins free throw.

Femi Olujobi led N.C. A&T (6-5) with 13 points.
