Duquesne to Host Rider in 2020-21 Non-Conference Schedule



Duquesne will host Rider as part of its 2020-21 non-conference schedule, Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned.

Rider finished last season with a record of 18-12, which was good for third place in the MAAC. Rider finished the season rated No. 187 in adjusted efficiency by and was No. 185 in the NCAA’s NET Rankings. The Broncs’ season ended with the coronavirus-related cancellation of the MAAC Tournament.

The Broncs  might be rebuilding this season after losing three of their top four scorers from 2019-20, as leading scorer Dimencio Vaughn (14.8 points per game) transferred to Ole Miss and top rebounder Tyere Marshall (12.9 points per game, eight rebounds per game) and distributor Stevie Jordan (11.2 points per game, 4.2 assists per game) have graduated.

The Dukes have never faced Rider. The Broncs will join a home non-conference schedule that will also include Furman, Belmont, Towson and Winthrop. Duquesne will also host Cal Baptist and San Jose State and visit Maryland in the Maryland Showcase. Finally, the Dukes will visit Wyoming in the Mountain West Conference/Atlantic-10 challenge. That leaves four unreported games on the maximum 31-game docket.

Duquesne does not yet know where it will be playing its 2020 non-conference games thanks to coronavirus-related construction delays on UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse.
