Re: Dukes @ Drexel Dragons in 1st Round of WNIT

The broadcast of the game will be shown on DragonsTV:  https://portal.stretchinternet.com/drexel/

It will likely be a very tough game for the Dukes.  While none of the Dragon's starters are above 6' 0", they all are very good shooters of FGs, 3-pointers, & free throws -- better than the Dukes in all three categories.  It will be like playing 5 guards.  Duquesne will have to get the ball to 6' 3" Szamosi and 6' 3" Lass early on and hope Drexel fouls a lot.  Because of the height advantage, the Dukes should have a decided rebounding advantage.  Drexel is 1-4 in its last 5 games vs. the Dukes' record of 4-1.

For all of the talk that Duquesne is a coaching graveyard blah blah blah, Suzie built a strong program and Dan Burt took it next level.

Re: Dukes @ Drexel Dragons in 1st Round of WNIT

Dukes ahead, 27-26, at the half.  Lots of 3-point shots taken by both teams.  Dukes 3-pt. shooting - 6 for 11 (55%); Drexel - 4 for 16 (25%).  Dukes should be out-rebounding this team; however, the Dukes trail, 19-20 and are being beaten on the offensive glass, 4-8.  Dukes need to use its height advantage much better that what I saw in the 1st half to put the Dragons back in their cave.

Drexel blew the doors off of the dukes in the third quarter. Oh well, let's see if we can take a step back up the ladder next season.

Re: Dukes @ Drexel Dragons in 1st Round of WNIT

Dukes got out-played in the 3rd and 4th Qs.  Coach Dan got 2 technical fouls in the 4th and was asked to leave the court.  A very disappointing way to end the season with a 70-47 loss.  

The taller Dukes were outrebounded by Drexel 44 to 30, including a similar Duquesne deficiency in offensive rebounds, 15-8.  Unfortunately Kadri-Ann Lass failed to play with the level of improvement that we saw during the A-10 tournament: 0-4 FGs; 2 pts.;1rb; 1assist;1TO; and 1Blk in 21 minutes.  

The only players that played at a level reflective of their seasons' work were Chassidy Omogrosso and Amadea Szamosi.  Chassidy's stats: 6-13 FGs; 3-8 3-Pt.; 3-4 FT; 18 pts.; 1 rb.; 1 ast.; 0 TOs; 2 Stls. in 40 minutes.
Amadea's stats:  5-8 FGs; 1-2 3-Pt.; 2-4 FT; 13 pts.; 11 rb.; 0 ast.; 3 TOs; and 1 Stl. in 33 minutes.
