DUQUESNE HEAD COACH Chase Brooks
"Our guys battled hard against a very good team. For a mid-week road game, they really performed strongly. We were able to produce chances, but the ball didn't bounce our way. I really feel this was a big, positive step forward for us as far as our ability to compete against one of the better teams in the country. We need to learn and we need to continue to grow. It's now time to start the conference schedule, and time to make some noise."
The Dukes return home to face La Salle in the Atlantic 10 opener on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 3:00 p.m.
