It’s that time again. The time when one more win is all it takes to keep going. Score just one more point than the opponent and the season rolls on.
Many times a stat sheet doesn’t tell the whole story, but it did tonight as Dayton (17-10, 7-6) defeated Duquesne (15-12, 6-7) 74-62 in a must-win game for both teams, as they stood tied in eighth place in the Atlantic 10.
Many things change from game to game, especially when over a month’s time has passed before taking on an opponent again. A team shoots better, a different player is more zoned in, calls go one way more than another and the variables go on.

In their all-red, “Bulls-like” throwback jerseys honoring the former Duke and first African American to be drafted in the National Basketball Association, five players scored in double digits for Duquesne, led by Eric Evans’ 17, to defeat Richmond 81-72 in the third annual Chuck Cooper Classic in front of a sellout home crowd.
When the top two scoring teams in the Atlantic 10 face off, one would anticipate a fast-paced game. That’s exactly what went down in last night’s game, except Duquesne (12-7, 3-2) was able to effectively contain Massachusetts (14-5, 3-2), the top scoring team in the A-10, to eight points below their average while the Dukes scored above their average for the 80-69 win.
