Women's Basketball 7th in Latest ESPN Mid-Major Rankings
Dec. 13, 2012
BRISTOL, Conn. - The Duquesne women's basketball team are up one spot to 7th in the latest ESPN Mid-Major Rankings. The rankings are based on the blog of ESPN's Graham Hays.
Said Hays of Duquesne, "With apologies to Belma Nurkic, who scored a game-high 18 points, the best line for Duquesne in a 70-61 win against city rival Pittsburgh might be the one rebound in six minutes turned in by Vanessa Abel. Those were the first minutes Abel played since an injury ended her campaign after 15 games last season, and the minutes came shortly after she was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA that extended her career. A point guard who led the team in assists and had a 2-1 assist-to-turnover ratio last season, she makes a deep team that much deeper."
The Dukes (8-1) take on James Madison (3-5) on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.
