I think that Pitt should be able to beat the press- Levance and Brad’s ball handling and passing abilities will be able to get Pitt down the court, and we should be able to out-run Duquesne over the course of the game. Don’t be surprised if the Dukes are in this one for a long stretch of time, as this is a team capable of putting up big offensive numbers- four players are averaging double digits, and they put up a school-record 129 points in their season opener against Howard. Duquesne does have a tendancy to turn the ball over- their starting backcourt duo of Kojo Mensah and Aaron Jackson have combined for 55 turnovers in their last six games. For a Dukes team outrebounding it’s opponents by seven and creating turnovers, this should definitely be a step up from the last few games, and the sold-out Palumbo Center should make this game a fun one to watch. I expect a high scoring contest where Pitt’s chemistry and experience allows them to pull away in the second half.
