In their first road game in six games, Duquesne (6-5) took the loss to Western Michigan (3-7) last night, 85-71 and is now 0-3 on the road this season.
Although the sun had already set by the start of last night’s game, Duquesne (6-4) pulled out the 66-59 win over Penn State (6-5) in the teams’ 43rd matchup, with a night and day effort from the first half to second half, led by two Detroit guys, senior guard Eric Evans who had a game-high 20 points and sophomore swingman Jerry Jones’ who had a career-high 14 points.
Robert Morris (7-2) added one more win to its best start in school history as they defeated the Duquesne Dukes (5-4) 64-60 tonight—beating the Dukes in back-to-back years for the first time since the ’83-’84 season.
The six minute scoring drought in the first half by the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles, combined with Duquesne’s 12-3 run within the first four minutes of the second half and Sean Johnson’s career high 25 points helped lead the Duquesne Dukes to their 77-67 win in the two teams’ first ever meeting.
Among the things the University of Pittsburgh Panthers (6-1) did well their 80-69 win over the Duquesne Dukes (4-3) in last night’s City Game, two of them in a back-to-back sequence were agreed by all parties involved to be the dagger that would be the one that killed. The piercing of the skin was the already known and glaring disadvantage for Duquesne, a rebound, and the shove into the gut was an uncontested three.
Duquesne men’s basketball players know the deal when it comes to the No. 17 University of Pittsburgh Panthers, (5-1) who they play tomorrow night in the always hyped-up City Game at Consol Energy Center.

The boys are taking it back to the good old days, the AAU days, the days of three games in three days.

There are times in life when things go our way, and more times that they do not. Subconsciously, the way we react to and deal with most situations we face is based on external influences; the people who are in our lives and the environment that surrounds us. The same holds true for Kansas City quarterback, Tyler Palko.

Then, a fan said, “Hey, it’s early in the season,” after stating his opinion about the refutable-worthy call.
