Duquesne announces home and road opponents for Atlantic 10 play

| Wednesday, June 13, 2018 8:42 p.m

Duquesne’s 2018-19 Atlantic 10 men’s basketball schedule includes home games against two NCAA Tournament qualifiers from last season.

The 18-game schedule, released Wednesday by the conference, lists home and away opponents for each of the 14 Atlantic 10 schools. Dates and times will be announced later.

The Dukes will play home and road games against Dayton, Fordham, George Washington, St. Bonaventure and Saint Louis. St. Bonaventure qualified for the NCAA Tournament last season.

Home-only opponents include NCAA Tournament qualifier Rhode Island — which won a first-round NCAA game at PPG Paints Arena in March — plus Massachusetts, Saint Joseph’s and VCU. Duquesne will play NCAA Tournament team Davidson, George Mason, La Salle and Richmond on the road.

Duquesne finished 16-16 last season, its first under coach Keith Dambrot. That included a 7-11 record in A-10 play, the Dukes’ most conference victories since 2011-12.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
