Fordham build an eight point lead after a Davis layup at 8:36. Duquesne cut it to two points on Julijana Vojinovic's 3-pointer at 1:12 before a Zara Jillings layup made the score 28-24 heading into halftime.

Duquesne was able to keep it at a two-possession game for the majority of the 3rd quarter, but couldn't get over the hump, down 38-36 heading into the final 10 minutes.

A 3-pointer by Omogrosso made the score 40-39 early in the 4th quarter, but that is as close as the Dukes would get. They had four chances to tie or go ahead, but could not connect.
