Duquesne Takes Care of UMass Lowell, 83-71

Duquesne Takes Care of UMass Lowell, 83-71

PITTSBURGH — Any questions as to how Duquesne would respond following its first loss of the season earlier this week, were quickly answered against a UMass Lowell team which came into Sunday’s game allowing 81.3 points per game.

Overcoming two technical fouls and a 1-for-12 effort from the field in the second half, Duquesne was able to come away with an 83-71 victory.

Sophomore guard Eric Williams Jr. set a season-high with 22 points on a perfect 5-for-5 shooting from the field. Michael Hughes added 19 points on an 8-for-10 performance on his shots.

At halftime, Duquesne led 46-33 and by doing so, amassed its highest output in an opening 20 minutes, since a Dec. 9, 2017 contest against Delaware State.

With Duquesne’s advantage down to single digits, the defense was able to lock in and UMass Lowell was held without a field goal for the last 2:45 of the game.

Duquesne will next play in the annual City Game contest which will tip off Friday at 7 p.m. from PPG Paints Arena. This contest will be televised by ACC Network Extra
