Despite college basketball returning seven weeks from today, many questions remain regarding schedules and logistics.
The Duquesne Dukes, like a majority of programs, are trying to finalize their non-conference schedule as well as determine if they’ll be playing a small portion of their games in a bubble setting, such as been done in the NBA and NHL playoffs.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Despite a report that says Duquesne has committed to playing in a bubble in Louisville, Pittsburgh Sports Now has been told that nothing has been finalized. While that could eventually happen, the Dukes athletic department and basketball staff are looking at other options as well.
PSN has learned that along with Louisville, the Dukes are looking at playing in a bubble at places such as Washington D.C., Baltimore and Houston. In terms of how many games could be played there, we’re being told that possibly 5 games.
A final decision on this could be announced sometime this week.
As far as the Dukes’ new basketball home, here are updated pictures sent out this morning from the university of UPMC Chuck Cooper Fieldhouse.
