On Monday, Duquesne added Davis Larson, who was formerly a Graduate Assistant for the program, to the team’s active roster as a player, a source close to the program told Pittsburgh Sports Now.
Larson was in his first season as a graduate assistant with the Dukes this year after graduating from Division II Hillsdale College in the Spring. The Sheboygan, Wisconsin native finished his Hillsdale career with 991 points in 105 games, while shooting a remarkable 51% from the floor as well as 41% from three (93 for 215).He attended high school at Sheboygan North High School, where he set the all-time scoring record with 1,733 points.

Davis Larson, everybody! The senior knocks down a massive 3-pointer with 19 seconds to go to give Hillsdale the breathing room it needs. Chargers lead Cedarville 81-76 with 11 seconds left in double OT.

Standing at 6-foot-5, 190-plus pounds, Larson has legitimate size for a Division I three-man, and has all the tools to contribute solid minutes for a Dukes roster looking for shooters. He also brings athleticism, as well as a good handle and ability to drive and finish through traffic.
Duquesne’s roster had an opening due to Austin Rotroff’s ankle injury, which will most likely keep him sidelined till January, as well as Maceo Austin’s departure from the program.
Now, head coach Keith Dambrot has moved the former graduate assistant Larson on scholarship and is looking to use him in a significant role this season.
