Aug. 18, 2012

TORONTO - The Duquesne women's basketball team opened its Canadian Tour with a 91-36 victory over A-Game on Saturday afternoon at George Brown College in downtown Toronto.

Five Dukes scored in double-figures led by Wumi Agunbiade with 15 points. Orsi Szecsi, Raegan Moore and April Robinson each scored 13 and Oditte Odisho added 10 for DU.

Trailing 8-7 early in the first half, Robinson's 3-pointer at 12:43 started a 10-0 run to give Duquesne a 17-8 lead. The Dukes defense would step up as well, holding A-Game to just two field goals until halftime. Jocelyn Floyd's running layup as time expired in the first half capped a 31-5 run and gave DU a 38-13 lead going into halftime.

Duquesne came out on fire in the second half as Moore buried a pair of 3-pointers. The Dukes held A-Game scoreless until the 15:44 mark of the second half. By then, DU led 53-16. Jose-Ann Johnson's layup gave Duquesne a 40-point lead at 60-20 with 12:40 left in regulation. Moore's follow-up off a Belma Nurkic miss put the Dukes up by 50 points with 1:23 remaining.

The next game for DU will be tomorrow afternoon when they take on the All-Stars. The contest will be played at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario. The third and final game is on Tuesday night at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario
