WBB Ranked #7 in Latest ESPN Poll
Jan. 24, 2013
BRISTOL, Conn. - The Duquesne women's basketball team has moved up three spots to #7 in the latest ESPN Mid-Major Poll. The rankings are based on the blog of ESPN's Graham Hays. The poll was released prior to the Dukes 73-51 victory over VCU last night.
Says Hays of Duquesne,"After back-to-back strong defensive showings against Saint Louis and Temple this past week, Duquesne has held eight opponents to fewer than 50 points this season. It's still nice to have the kind of offense Wumi Agunbiade provided in those recent wins. The Canadian junior scored 23 points against both the Billikens and Owls, the most any Dukes player scored in a game this season and just the second and third times a player scored as many as 20. A trip to Dayton looms in February, but three road games in the next two weeks present enough of an immediate challenge."
The Dukes (15-3, 4-0 A-10) take on Fordham (14-5, 4-0 A-10) on Sunday at the Palumbo Center. Tipoff is at 2:00 p.m.
