SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Duquesne’s bid for its first 4-0 start in nine seasons fell short Tuesday, as the Dukes allowed a 13-0 run down the stretch and lost 67-56 to Notre Dame.

Tavian Dunn-Martin led Duquesne (3-1) with 14 points. Michael Hughes added 10. Eric Williams Jr. and Sincere Carry, who went into the game averaging a combined 30.3 points, were held to five, all by Williams, and shot a combined 1 of 16 from the field.

John Mooney had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Prentiss Hubb added a career-high 14 points for Notre Dame (4-1).

The Irish, who blew a 12-point first-half lead, trailed 52-51 with 7:09 remaining before scoring 13 straight for a 64-52 advantage with 1:19 remaining. Mooney contributed five points and Rex Plueger four during the stretch. T.J. Gibbs scored seven of his 11 points in the second half for Notre Dame.

The Dukes begin a streak of nine straight games in Pittsburgh when they host UMass Lowell on Sunday.

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.
