Ray Goss Gets His Due

Alan Robinson, the Associated Press's Pittsburgh reporter, covers major sports in the city. While Pitt may get more coverage, Robinson has been at a number of Duquesne games, including the Dukes' win over Saint Joseph's. Thursday, the AP published his feature story on Ray Goss, Duquesne's game broadcaster for 40+ years. (Link inside)

From this season's men's basketball media guide:

    Ray Goss, who broadcast his first Duquesne basketball games as a student sports director at DU in 1957 (WDUQ), is begining his 40th season as the play-by-play "Voice of the Dukes."

    Goss, a 1994 inductee to the Duquesne University Sports Hall of Fame, has called the action for nearly half of all DU games ever cotested. He has described the action for two NCAA Tournament teams and seven Dukes National Invitation Tournament teams.

Note: WDUQ was founded in 1949 as a student laboratory on the Duquesne University campus. As each decade passed, DUQ grew in response to the needs of the Pittsburgh community. Eventually, National Public Radio (NPR) picked DUQ to be their Pittsburgh flag station.
