The Duquesne men’s basketball team started their week long stay in the Bahamas with a win.
In their first game of the Dukes Bahamas Tour, Keith Dambrot’s team came away with a 103-89 win over Raw Talent Elite. Leading the way in the opener was sophomore point guard Sincere Carry with 27 points and graduate transfer center Baylee Steele with 19 points and a game-high 15 rebounds.

Other key performers Wednesday night were Lamar Norman Jr. with 18 points and Tavian Dunn-Martin who contributed 11 points and a game-high 7 assists.
”It was good to get the guys out on the court,” said Dambrot. “Baylee Steele, who has worked really hard, gave us a presence in the paint and Sincere played well offensively. We did miss our other big guys though.”
Mike Hughes missed the game with an injury suffered in practice and Austin Rotroff and Amari Kelly are both still recovering from ACL surgeries.
For the game, Duquesne shot 40% from the field, 8 for 31 from 3-point range and were 27-37 from the free throw line.
Dambrot started a starting five of Carry, Dunn-Martin, Norman Jr, Marcus Weathers and Steele.
Duquesne completes the tour on Friday night at 7 PM vs. Abaco Elite.
