There are 10 games in total; the 9th one is tonight. The Dukes have already clinched a top 8 seed, but a top 4 seed gives them a first rounds home game. They can clinch that with a WIN tonight hosting Bonnies (who are really bad) AND EITHER a loss/tie by GW in Davidson (very bad, unlikely) OR a Mason loss/tie at home to LaSalle (undefeated, quite likely). Go Dukes. Beat the Bonnies

As a senior Tarle got some playing time and was effective in some games I saw. He played ackward but was disruptive around the glass and came up with key baskets at times.

Remember, he played for the coach who once told a Duquesne Hall of Fame player he would play a walk on before Playing him again, and he proved it. He later as interim coach of the NBA Boston Celtics, traded away that same former Duquesne player who was his inherited starting point guard, He sent him to Detroit where Mike James won a NBA ring as a member of the NBA Champions.

What a loser that JC was, another BC blunder.

I get the difference. Simply left "in" out of the sentence.

Point was that Tarle never got a decent chance,

I do remember that John Carroll had a knack, long before Ferry did the same, for keeping some apparent talent firmly glued to the bench. You can't score when you're sitting on the pine.

Not 70 points a game, 70 points in a game.

Had to chuckle when coach said Williams scored 50 pts. in a game so he must have the ability to score or something similar to that. It reminded of when Niksa Tarle came here and was touted as scoring 70 or more points in a game. I had high hopes of him lighting it up. I doubt he scored 70 pts. in his Duquesne career and probably had more traveling calls then buckets.

Zac, would you happen to know why Nick Washington is no longer on the roster?

I'm shooting for 10th, so we can start without the play-in game of the A10 tournament
