What a game. Duquesne(9-3) has a seven game win streak and need only one more win to equal their win total from last season(10-22) San Francisco(7-5) trailed but 12 in the first half and 11 in the 2nd half, was able to take the lead late but was unable to hold it. They had a chance to tie it in the end but a tip in attempt by Taavi Jurkatamm(Tallin, Estonia) was not close, as the buzzard sounded to end the game.
Leading the Dukes was Mike Lewis II(St. Louis, MO) with 20 points, with 18 coming in the 2nd half.The Dukes hit 13-18 field free throws to aid their cause in the win.
For the Dons Matt McCarthy(Melbourne, VIC) led the way with a career high 19. Freshman Souley Boum(Oakland, CA) had 14 points, but only hit 4-11 from the field. He committed 4 turmovers, with two coming in crunch time and hurt his team in a large way.
