TYSONS CORNER, Va. - The Duquesne women's basketball team received three votes in the latest USA TODAY Women's Basketball Coaches Poll. This is the first time since Dec. 25, 2012 that the Dukes have received votes in the coaches poll.
Duquesne (16-6, 8-1 A-10) is coming off road wins at George Mason and Richmond last week and is on a 7-game winning streaking heading into tomorrow's game against George Washington (15-7, 6-3 A-10).
The USA TODAY Sports women's basketball coaches poll is conducted weekly throughout the regular season using a panel of head coaches at Division I schools. The panel is chosen by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association. The members represent each of the 32 Division I conferences that receive an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Each coach submits a Top 25 with a first-place vote worth 25 points, second place 24, and so on down to one point for 25th.
