Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

Maybe, who knows, playing in the huge Carrier dome vs a national program, then a high school gym vs us  might throw off Colgate.   We'll find out in a few hrs.   Would really be impressed with a win tonight, followed by the ladies tomorrow, and top it off with a Steelers W Sunday vs Bungals.

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

Colgate likes to share the ball they're averaging over 20 assists a game. they also like to hoist the 3. I'm sure our staff has a game plan and I'm expecting a real slobberknocker.

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

This game being played in Akron is a total joke for so many reasons. Most importantly the home fans can’t get there, they probably don’t have the ability to stream the game, and a college team playing in a high school gym.  I just don’t get it. Please tell me what this game in Ohio does for Duquesne.

48-34 Dukes at half. Grant with 17, Brewer 10 on a combined 6-7 from three. Williams with 8 on 4-4 shooting. Rozier, Rotroff, and Clark have been solid as well.

Tied game, gut check time.  Can't even pick it up on the radio, sad.

Within 8 minutes and 20 seconds, Colgate makes adjustments and the game is tied in Ohio !!!

Would have really been nice to see this game. I’ll take the win and move forward.

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

This was a very nice win.  No chance we finish last in the A10.  Colgate made the NCAA tournament the last 2 seasons.

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

I am with you Wildwood, we take the win and move on.  This may be KD's best team in his tenure with overall talent and depth level.  Of course staying healthy is critical.  Very happy for Rot Roh as well, what an essential piece and contributor.  Also glad to see Trey play a critical role in this win. Our guards are the real deal...Dae Dae, Brewer, Clark, Rozier.  We now move the ball unlike last year.  Starting to get really excited about where this team can end up if we stay focused and healthy.

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

Top notch win against a Colgate team that didn’t quit.

With no Gunn or Easley, the Dukes were short in the the front court. When Reece went down with an ankle injury early in the 2nd half, the momentum switched. The Dukes got punched and were on their heels; Colgate tied the game. The Dukes countered and opened up another double digit lead. Dukes couldn’t close this one easily due to missed FT’s and a couple of turnovers which allowed Colgate to hang until the end.

Rotroff, Tre Williams and David Dixon (who played the best game of his young career) were critical components to this win.

Hope Reece and Gunn are back soon; and Easley gets out of the doghouse. Go Dukes!

Re: Game Thread - Colgate Raiders

Gents, this was my 3rd trip to Akron for Dukes game and by far this was the best atmosphere. The crowd was very engaged and surprisingly Colgate had a contingent of fans. Dukes response to the comeback and the injury to Reece really commendable. The game definitely changed with his injury. Dukes need to have one of their bigs or a poor foul shooter inbound the ball. Because of Brewers size he would be easy to trap but by far either he, Dae Dae or Hornsky need to be your foul shooters. 
BTW at 63% Dae Dae has to be one of the best 3pt shooters in the country.
