Duquesne Off to First 4-0 Start Since 2009, Beat Indiana State 74-71

Duquesne didn’t make it easy on themselves as they had to fight their way back from multiple double-digit deficits but in the end they did, beating Indiana State, 74-71 in the first game of the Junkanoo Jam Classic in the Bahamas.

Freshman Ashton Miller made two free throws with :18 left to give Duquesne a 72-71 lead. Following two more free throws by Sincere Carry, Indiana State missed a three-pointer at the buzzer and the Dukes remained perfect in 2019.

Duquesne’s 4-0 start is their best since the 2009-10 season.

Three Duquesne players reached double-digit scoring led by graduate transfer Baylee Steele with 20 points (career-high) including four 3-pointers. Sophomore guard Sincere Carry finished with 15 points and was 8-8 at the free throw line. Freshmen Maceo Austin turned in the best game of his young career with 13 points and 9 rebounds. Sophomore Lamar Norman provided a spark off the bench with 9 points (three 3-pointers).

Duquesne was able to overcome two double-digit deficits, 15-3 and then in the second half when they trailed 43-33.

Next up for the Dukes is a game tomorrow evening against Air Force with a tip-off of 6:30 PM.
