Duquense-Dayton: Dukes Soar Past Flyers 77-66

The Duquesne Dukes advanced to the Atlantic Ten Conference Tournament Finals last night with a 77-66 victory over the Dayton Flyers.

Aaron Jackson and Melquan Bolding both scored 24 points for the Dukes.

The Dukes who made headlines three years ago when Sam Ashaolu, Kojo Mensah, Shawn James, Stuard Baldonado, and Aaron Jackson were shot on campus.

Eric Evans of Duquesne also added 12 points.

The last time Duquesne made a postseason tournament was in 1994—and that was the NIT.

Mickey Perry led the Flyers with 15 points, Charles Little added 13, and Chris Wright had 12.

The Flyers are still on the bubble and are looking for their first tournament bid since 2004.

Duquesne will play Temple at 6 PM on ESPN2.
