Remembering sports’ biggest stories from 2017

Drew White | Staff Writer 01/11/2018 Failures and successes. The end of some eras, and the beginnings of others. Comebacks and collapses. Streaks, both ending and beginning. And, of course, controversy. These are just a few words and ways to describe the most recent year in sports. On the Bluff, Duquesne certainly saw it’s fair […]

MBB frosh Williams Jr. continues to impress

David Borne | Staff Writer 12/07/2017 Since the 1978-79 season, there have only been two Duquesne freshmen to post three double-doubles in their first six NCAA games: Dukes all-time great Bruce Atkins and freshman Eric Williams Jr. Coming into the season, Williams wasn’t a name that many Atlantic 10 basketball fans were too familiar with. […]

City superiority up for grabs with City Game nearing

David Borne | Staff Writer 11/30/2017 For the first time in years, it’s not definitively clear who is Pittsburgh’s top men’s basketball program. The young 2017-18 season hasn’t been kind to either the Duquesne Dukes or the Pitt Panthers, and both teams are trying to effectively formulate an identity. Duquesne stands with a record of […]

Over the past seven games between the Dukes and the Colonials, Duquesne is 1-6 — something that new head coach Keith Dambrot surely can’t […]

Early on in tenure, Dambrot living up to billing

David Borne | Staff Writer 11/16/2017 Keith Dambrot is living up to the hype. It’s as simple as that. The Dukes stand at 2-0 right now, and are already playing a cleaner game now in several facets than they did all last year. It’s no secret that the program has been bullied by their opposition […]

76ers’ McConnell’s roots reach back to the Bluff

David Borne | Staff Writer 11/09/2017 For years, the Pittsburgh area has been known for the vast amount of top football prospects it produces. The city has put out a ton of wrestling talent, as well. However, one sport’s protégés that are often overlooked in Pittsburgh are basketball recruits. A number of talented hoopers have […]

Adam Lindner | Sports Editor 11/09/2017 On March 8 at PPG Paints Arena in the opening round of last season’s Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship, No. 14 Duquesne led No. 11 Saint Louis by 18 points with 15 minutes remaining in regulation.

Castro-Caneddy set on succeeding in final year at Duquesne

Adam Lindner | Sports Editor 11/09/2017 Rarely will an amateur player claim to modeling their game after a player as low key, mellow and fundamentally-sound as former NBA guard Andre Miller, who boasts a career 2.73 assist-to-turnover ratio while managing to shoot only .217 from 3-point range. Even more unique are players that are able […]
