Time To Get On The Record Contest

It is time again to get on the record predicting the total number of Duquesne wins this season (including A-10 Tournament play).  The winner will receive  the fabulous no expense paid prize of a two night stay in beautiful downtown McKeesport, Pa (meals, transportation, and accomodations not included).  All entries must be received by midnight November 8th. The tiebreaker will be the number of points scored by the Dukes in the A10 tournament.

The total possible number of Non Conference games are 13
The total possible League games are 18

Therefore the total possible number of wins before A10 Tournament are 31


To this total add the numer of A10 tournament wins for the total number of wins for contest purposes

Re: Time To Get On The Record Contest

Predicting 10 wins 3 losses in the non-conference  - 10 wins 8 losses in the Conference -- ie 20 - 11

I'm going to one up you, old friend, and go with 27 total wins.  I'm agreeing with your non-conference and conference marks but I say 3 wins in the A-10 tournament to grab the automatic bid.  240 points as a tie breaker.

Can I spend 2 nights in McKeesport's 10th Ward instead of downtown?  It's so nice by the sewage treatment plant.

Just for you my friend.  If you win, in full celebration mode of making the NCAA tournament, maybe courtesy of one of our loyal posters we may throw in a case of Duquesne Pilsner.

This sounds more realistic than some of the 27-or-so win predictions. But I'd go as far as 20 or more wins. A lot of losses can be very competitive, which this team should be.

Re: Time To Get On The Record Contest

I'll throw in a sixer of Stoney's if we make a NCAA tourney.    :-)

I just dont know that much about the team and the conference other than its St Bona's world and we are all just living in it,  but I would say that my prediction should be the floor.   I would hope we can get a few more wins.   20 wins would be nice, and possibly snag a NIT bid if things go right.

Re: Time To Get On The Record Contest

I’ll say 8-5 and 10-8 with one win in the Tournament. That would be 19-14 with Total points at 147.

Hey Judge Jack, is there any record of who came up with the nickname Boyle Lancers? Whenever I heard that reference, I smiled. I was a Mon Valley Catholic Spartan. Our venerable high school is now an assisted living community.
10-3 OOC
11-7 A10
2 wins in A10
23-11 overall.
180 pts in A10T.
