Duquesne announces home and road opponents for Atlantic 10 play
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.
