May 8, 2014
PITTSBURGH - Duquesne will host six of the seven Atlantic 10 teams that made post-season appearances last year as the conference released 2014-15 home and road opponents today.
The 14 member schools will face each other once and five schools twice in the league's first 18-game regular-season schedule since 1991.
Duquesne's home-and-home opponents include 2014 NCAA tournament participants Dayton, George Washington and Saint Louis along with first-year conference member Davidson, which earned a NIT appearance as the Southern Conference regular-season champion last season. Longtime rival St. Bonaventure is DU's fifth two-time opponent.
Duquesne and George Mason are the only schools facing four teams that made post-season appearances in 2014 in their five-team home-and-home pod.
NCAA tournament teams Saint Joseph's and VCU will also visit Pittsburgh along with George Mason and Rhode Island to round out the nine-game home conference slate.
The Dukes will play Fordham, La Salle, 2014 NCAA participant UMass and Richmond on the road in addition to the five home-and-home opponents.
All 14 conference teams will qualify for the 2015 Atlantic 10 Championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on March 11-15.
The complete 2014-15 conference schedule with dates and times will be announced at a later date.
