Keith Dambrot’s plan to add veteran guards to his backcourt got officially underway on Sunday with the addition of a talented player.
Following an official visit this weekend, Tre Clark announced that he has committed to play for the Dukes. The 6-foot-3, 175 pounder played last season at Northwest Florida State and led them to the NJCAA D1 National Championship.

Prior to last season, Clark was a member of the VCU program. At the time of his departure from VCU, Clark was averaging 5.9 points per game and logged an incredible team-leading 6.2 steals percentage. Clark was averaging 16.1 minutes a game while backing up starting point guard Ace Baldwin.

Clark is going to bring valuable A10 experience to the Dukes roster as well as being a winner everywhere that he’s played. A college basketball evaluator tells PSN that “Clark is good at everything.” This commitment also adds some versatility to Dambrot’s guard rotation.
Despite this commitment, Duquesne isn’t finished adding guards and will likely try and bring on two more players to the backcourt, likely ones with experience. This off-season, Jackie Johnson III, Tyson Acuff and Toby Okani have all made the decision to transfer.
