Duquesne perfect at home, tops Maryland-Eastern Shore 72-57
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Lamar Norman Jr. scored 16 points and finished one rebound shy of a double-double as Duquesne kept its perfect record on its home floor intact with a 72-57 victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore for its sixth win at home Thursday night.
The Dukes now have won three in a row. Maryland-Eastern Shor (1-9) has lost all seven road games this season.
Duquesne held a 20-point lead with two minutes left in the first half, but the Hawks sandwiched a pair of Ryan Andino 3-pointers around a 3 from Norman, and AJ Cheeseman tipped in a shot at the buzzer to cut the Dukes’ lead to 41-26.
The Dukes maintained their double-digit lead throughout the second half, but the Hawks managed to briefly pare it to 11 points, but could never break into single digits.
Andino hit 6 of 13 from behind the arc and finished with 22 points for Maryland-Eastern Shore.
