It was a case of closing the game out. St. Bonaventure took a 4 point lead into halftime. The Bonnies were challenged the final twenty minutes yet never lost that lead en route to a 62-48 victory over Duquesne at Reilly Center. The Friday evening nationally televised contest improved the Bonnies to 4-1 in the Atlantic Ten and 6-1 overall.
Possessions: 61- More of a grind it out affair but not out of the ordinary as both teams entered averaging 65 possessions per game.
Offensive efficiency: St. Bona 102, Duquesne 79
A good defensive game by Bona. When Duquesne found some perimeter space and knocked down a few threes it didn’t look that way. The visitors gradually cooled off shooting 7 of 21 (33%) from deep. Duquesne was also forced into an exceptionally high 26% turnover rate. The Bonnies checked in with a noteworthy 13% in the same category.
Kyle Lofton of St. Bonaventure led all scorers with 28 points. Michael Hughes paced the Dukes with 14.
