Unbeaten Dukes Ranked No. 20 in NET, Receive Top 25 Vote

At 9-0, the Dukes are one of just four undefeated teams remaining in the nation, joining Auburn, Liberty and San Diego State. It seems that the rest of the college basketball world is catching on.

For the second consecutive week, Duquesne received one vote in the men’s basketball AP Top 25. The Dukes are tied for 23rd amongst teams receiving votes, along with Arkansas and BYU, which each also received one vote point.

Duquesne received the fourth-most votes amongst Atlantic 10 schools, behind No. 13 Dayton, VCU (21 votes) and Richmond (three votes).

The Dukes are also ranked No. 20 in the first release of the NCAA’s NET rankings, the metric that has replaced the RPI in the NCAA Tournament selection process. The Dukes are the second-best A10 team according to NET. KenPom.com ranks Duquesne No. 60 in adjusted efficiency, the third-best A10 team.

Duquesne will put its unbeaten record on the line later this week when the Dukes will travel to St. Petersburg, Florida for two games in the St. Pete Shootout. Duquesne plays Austin Peay on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and UAB on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg.

The Dukes will then close out non-conference play with another neutral site game against Marshall in the Cleveland Classic on Dec. 29.
