RTC Live: St. Bonaventure @ DuquesnePosted by rtmsf on January 7th, 2012
RTC Live will be in Pittsburgh this afternoon for an Atlantic 10 matchup featuring two teams — St. Bonnie and Duquesne — looking for some traction in an unpredictable conference race.
Game #63. Welcome to a great Atlantic 10 Conference match up between St. Bonaventure and Duquesne at the A.J. Palumbo Center on the campus of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. The A-10 Conference is wide open in the early going with St. Louis and Xavier having lost their first conference matchups. Duquesne on paper is among the country’s best in points per game, assists per game, and field goal percentage, while showing a major weakness on the boards. St. Bonaventure, meanwhile, isn’t very impressive on paper, but has fought tough against the likes of Illinois and NC State. Tune in for a great game between two very evenly matched teams.
Both teams shot terribly in the first half, but Duquesne managed a six-point lead at the break. Just when it looked like St. Bonaventure was about to gain the lead and momentum midway through the second half, the Dukes had an answer against Andrew Nicholson, and never looked back. The Dukes’ 10-0 run shocked the Bonnies, and they never re-gained the will to win.
