PITTSBURGH — The Duquesne men’s basketball team continues to work on preparation for the Atlantic 10 Tournament which begins Wednesday for the conference, but a night later for the Dukes.
There is a bit of an unknown for Duquesne as it has to wait and see it if will be facing George Washington or Fordham, a result which will be determined Wednesday night.
Both team challenged Duquesne in regular-season play as GW defeated the Dukes at PPG Paints Arena and another contest against Fordham at the Pittsburgh Penguins home venue went to overtime.
Duquesne had a shorter practice Tuesday before each player took 50 free throws and hit the weight room. The team plans on harder practices over the next couple of days.
In Brooklyn, Duquesne will be looking for its first Atlantic 10 Championship victory since the 2014-15 season.
Prior to leaving for Brooklyn, PSN’s Zachary Weiss spoke with Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot on many topics, including his team’s current state, the conference as a whole and if he would answer the phone if the NIT called.
