The teams entered halftime separated by just a one-point margin, but the Dukes came out of the break on fire. More specifically, Amanda Kalin came out on fire.

Kalin made a pair of layups to give Duquesne the lead, Libby Bazelak put home a layup and then Kalin hit from 3-point range to force a Bonnies timeout. After a Bazelak block, Kalin hit a jumper and then made a free throw as the Dukes went on an 11-0 run.

The Dukes were able to hold the lead and the closest St. Bonventure got was a four-point margin with under 30 seconds to play, when Bazelak and Chassidy Omogross each hit late free throws to preserve the victory.

Kalin finished with 12 points on 5 of 10 shooting and also grabbed a team-high eight rebounds. Julijana Vojinovic come off the bench to lead the Dukes with 13 points, with nine of them coming from beyond the 3-point arc, where she was 3 of 7.

Forward Angela Staffileno had nine points in a reserve role. The Dukes out-scored the Bonnies, 29-4 from the bench.

The Dukes will return home to host Davidson on Wednesday, Jan. 9. That game has a 5 p.m. tipoff and will be followed by the men’s teams A-10 home opener against Fordham.
