Dukes Down Team Essence, 91-44
Nov. 1, 2008
Duquesne's women's basketball team took to the court for the first time of the 2008-09 season and came away with a 91-44 exhibition win over Team Essence, Saturday afternoon at the Palumbo Center.
Duquesne jumped to a 31-6 advantage in the first 12 minutes of the contest as all nine Dukes scored. Pryor led the way with eight of her 12 points coming in that span.
The overmatched Team Essence would cut the Duquesne lead to 23 points at the eight minute mark, but would get no closer the rest of the game as the Dukes built a 58-24 halftime lead and cruised through the second half.
The Red and Blue return to the hardwood next Saturday, Nov. 8 as they host Clarion at 2:30 pm in their final exhibition contest.
