The Duquesne Dukes and Dayton Flyers face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the UD Arena.
The Duquesne Dukes have been inconsistent this year and coming into this game they sit with a 3-3 record overall. Duquesne had lost two games in a row before beating Fordham in their last game 48-45 games. The offense was not strong in that game, but the defense looked good, and going forward they are going to need that defensive production to continue. On the season the Dukes are averaging 65.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 64.7 points per game. The Dukes are shooting 40.7 percent from the field but only 28.9 percent from behind the three point line. Duquesne is led by Marcus Weathers wh comes into this game averaging 13.2 points while shooting 48.4 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dayton Flyers who have been inconsistent this year but they are coming off a big win in their last game against Davidson. It took overtime to get the job done, but the defense locked down in the overtime period and that led to an 89-78 victory. On the season, Dayton is averaging 13.2 points per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the field. The Flyers are led by Jalen Crutcher who has been the best player for Dayton and on the season he is averaging 19.3 points per game while shooting 51.8 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from behind the three point line. Look for Dayton to try and push the pace in this game and make life tough on a Duquesne defense that will need to be good.
Dayton is 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 gams played on Wednesday.
Dayton is going to push the pace and I think that will make life tough on the defense of Duquesne. Dayton is going to come away with a win and a cover of the spread.
