Duquesne (15-15, 5-12) ends its regular season as the team faces Saint Joseph’s (24-6, 13-4) today at 4 p.m. at the Michael J. Hagen Arena.
The Dukes, who look to break even on the season, hope to end an eight-game losing streak. Of the past eight losses, three defeats came by four or fewer points and a fourth came in overtime.
Saint Joseph’s leads the series 38-13 overall and leads 20-2 at Philadelphia.
Duquesne comes off a 78-69 loss to Fordham on Wednesday. Saint Joseph’s returns from a 98-90 loss to St. Bonaventure on Wednesday.
The Dukes look to expand upon their 71-68 victory over Saint Joseph’s last year at Pittsburgh.
Senior guard Derrick Colter enters the game needing one assist to reach a total of 500 for his career. Only three Duquesne players have topped the 500 assist mark.
Senior guard Micah Mason, the fifth-leading 3-point shooter in NCAA history (.465), will break the school single-season record set by Tom Pipkins (99-233 in 1996-97)
with his next 3-pointer.
