OLEAN, N.Y. - St. Bonaventure's Gabby Richmond recorded a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds and Mckenna Maycock added a game-high 14 points off the bench in the Bonnies' 69-56 victory over Duquesne on Saturday afternoon at the Reilly Center.
Julijana Vojinovic led the Dukes (10-11, 3-5 A-10) with 12 points and seven rebounds.
SBU (8-12, 3-5 A-10) got 13 points from Mariah Ruff and 12 from Matea Britvar.
After Vojinovic scored the first basket of the game, St. Bonaventure went on a 10-0 run over the next 2:25. The Bonnies' lead would reach 10 points after Terry's basket made the score 19-9 with 40 seconds left. In the quarter the Dukes only shot 25 percent (4-of-16) and missed all seven of their 3-point attempts.
The Dukes got the deficit down to four points at 27-23 by the 3:41 mark on Judith Sole's layup. However, Duquesne would only make one more field goal the rest of the quarter and went into halftime trailing 33-27.
A Brianna Thomas jumper off a Nina Aho steal made it a 2-possession contest at 37-33 midway through the 3rd quarter. But the Dukes would end the quarter by missing their next seven field goal attempts. Terry's 3-pointer at the buzzer put the Bonnies ahead 47-34.
A Paige Cannon layup at 7:20 got the Dukes within eight points of tying the game at 48-40, but the Bonnies would score on the next possession and maintain a double-figure lead the rest of the way --with the exception of Chassidy Omogrosso's 3-pointer with 4:34 remaining that brought the Dukes within nine points, at 53-44.
