Duquesne was outrebounded 44-31, had 25 turnovers while shooting just 36.4 percent from the floor and 25.0% from the foul line.
Sophomore Damian Saunders, the Atlantic 10 Conference's men's basketball co-player of the week, again led Duquesne with 15 points, six rebounds, three steals and four blocked shots.
Saunders was the only Duke to reach double figures. Unfortunately he also led the team with seven of those turnovers.
Senior Aaron Jackson had five assists and four steals but just six points. Freshman Melquan Bolding, a preseason A-10 All-Rookie pick, had seven points and tied Damian with six rebounds in his first collegiate start.
Duquesne (-4-2), which will host West Virginia on Saturday, Dec. 13th, completes its four-game stretch of road games at Radford next Wednesday, December 10, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. in Virginia.
