Duquesne To Visit BJC Nov. 13 For Non-Conference Meeting With Penn State

For the seventh consecutive season, interstate foes Duquesne and Penn State will meet on the hardwood.

The Dukes, who hail from the increasingly talented A-10 Conference, might not’ve finished their 2015 campaign off on the highest of notes, but certainly kicked it off with some flair. Duquesne humbled the Nittany Lions 78-52 in the early stages of last season by way of the three pointer; the Dukes sank 17-34 shots from behind the arc, while the Lions could only manage five. Duquesne sputtered and stalled in the latter half of the season, mustering only six conference wins en route to a 17-17 finish.

Duquesne becomes Penn State’s second confirmed A-10 opponent of the 2016-17 slate, joining fellow conference-member George Washington, who narrowly missed the NCAA Tournament.

Though sharpshooter Derrick Colter, who dropped 26 points on the Lions and drained 6-9 from downtown, graduated, the Dukes restocked with plenty of young talent littering the roster.

While Penn State’s non-conference slate might seem difficult enough with Duke, Georgia Tech, and Pitt rounding out the early portion of the season, fans should be thankful the Lions don’t have to play Kentucky like our friends downstate.

The game will be on Nov. 13, with the tip-off time still up in the air.
