Duquesne Dukes - 14th

Head Coach: Ron Everhart
Record at Duquesne: 27-32 (2)

Home Court: AJ Palumbo Center (5,358)


1 Aaron Jackson Sr G 6-4 185
2 Chase Robinson Fr G 6-2 190
3 Eric Evans Fr G 5-11 195
13 Jason Duty Jr G 6-0 170
21 Shawntez Patterson Fr F 6-7 180
22 David Theis Fr F 6-8 215
23 Melquan Bolding Fr G 6-4 190
25 Damian Saunders So F 6-7 210
30 Bill Clark So F 6-5 205
31 Aleksander Milovic Fr F 6-7 235
32 BJ Monteiro Fr G 6-5 195
33 Rodrigo Peggau Fr F 6-8 230
54 Oliver Lewinson Fr C 6-9 240

First 5:

1-Jackson (will build around him, ironically only player left from Nee era)
2-Bolding (former Louisville recruit was rated #119 by PrepStars)
3-Clark (outstanding shooter will increase his 8.2 ppg from last year)
4-Saunders (offseason ankle surgery could slow this athletic player)
5-Lewinson (late signee may start but won't see extended minutes)

Second 5:

1-Evans (solid player from the Motor City could see lots of time)
2-Monteiro (Connecticut HS player of the year could suprise)
3-Theis (reported good shooter could play more if he rebounds)
4-Milovic (Everhart says he is one of the best young players in Europe)
5-Peggau (he would be in the first 5 if it weren't for offseason knee surgery)

Outlook: this is the 2nd time in three years that Everhart is rebuilding. They are talented pieces here but overall lack of experience will make it hard for the Dukes to have sustained success in the A10. The Dukes and Fordham will battle it out for the basement spot.
