Duquesne Looks to Build on Last Game

Duquesne in the last game faced off against St Bonaventure, and they were able to secure the 75-69 victory. Fousseyni Drame had a big game putting up 16 points and 14 rebounds. Duquesne is averaging 72.1 points while their defense is giving 67.7 points per game. The offense isn’t ranked the highest but the offense is ranked 74th. In this game if they want any short of chance, the defense is going to need to be good here. Dae Dae Grant is averaging 17.3 points while shooting 36.8 percent from the field. 

Can the Dayton Offense Bounce Back?

Dayton has found a lot of success this season, but they are coming off a loss in the last game. Dayton scored only 47 points against VCU and they ended up losing by two points. Nate Santos had a strong game putting up 19 points and six rebounds, but the rest of the team wasn’t good enough. Dayton is averaging 73.8 points while their defense is giving up 64.3 points per game. The defense is ranked 18th, but in this game it’s going to be about the offense being better. DaRon Holmes II has been the top player averaging 19.4 points while shooting 54.3 percent from the field. Dayton will play against Fordham, George Mason, and Davidson after this one.

Duquesne vs Dayton Betting Prediction 

The way Dayton’s offense scored in the last game is a bit concerning and I think they are going to struggle again here. This Duquesne offense is averaging 72.1 points and they are going to find offensive success here. Dayton’s defense might be good, but they aren’t going to pull away here, and that is going to be the difference here as Duquesne will keep the game close. Back Duquesne against the spread.
