Recap |  Box Score |  Quotes

  • The victory, combined with La Salle's 42-35 loss at Iona, clinched the 2004 MAAC Championship for the Dukes ... it is the sixth straight title and eighth in 10 years for Duquesne (1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004)

  • DU can finish a full game ahead of Marist with a win at La Salle next Saturday ... if the Dukes finish with a 3-1 record (as Marist did today), Duquesne would be the league champion by virtue of today's win
