NIU-Duquense Article
Dukes go down in OT, 88-82, for first loss of season

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

By Phil Axelrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The fans stood and cheered Duquesne's players as they slowly walked off the court at Palumbo Center last night.

And that was after a defeat.

They were cheering a valiant effort by the Dukes, who ran out of comebacks and lost to Northern Illinois in overtime, 88-82.

Duquesne worked overtime in search of a victory Monday night and nearly came away with another one before falling to Northern Illinois, 87-82, at Palumbo Center.

I was pretty impressed with their fans myself listening on the radio. The fact they were cheering their team just for giving a good effort at the end (you could hear them in the background) was pretty nice. They have some great fans.

Nice coverage for the Dukes in the Pittsburgh newspaper. Compare that to coverage of our basketball games in the Chicago papers.

Why would you compare them when they are entirely different. Duquesne is actually in Pittsburgh, while Dekalb is 60 miles from Chicago. In addition, the Chicago papers already have UIC, Loyola, DePaul, Northwestern, and Chicago State to cover. The comparison makes no sense.

Very true.

AND add to that the unique and tragic circumstances surrounding the Duquense program this year.

You're right! We are totally out of the area. Almost in another state! A whole 60 miles away! What was I thinking? Maybe I should have just asked for similar coverage that the other Chicago teams - ND, Ohio State, Marquette - get! 01-wingedeagle

Unless I'm mistaken, the city of Pittsburgh has only two D-I basketball teams: Pitt and Duquesne.

The city of Chicago has UIC, Loyola, DePaul, Chicago State and Northwestern all much closer than NIU.

So the circumstances are considerably different....

Quote:Hughes gave the NBA scouts at courtside something to look at with a soft mid-range jumper, a little hook from the baseline and dunks on put-backs.

"Hughes obviously is an NBA prospect," Duquesne coach Ron Everhart said. "We're going to struggle against good big guys. We tried doubling him and we tried fronting him. He hurt us on offensive rebounds."

For the many of you that laughed before the year at the idea Hughes is an NBA prospect, there ya go. If he stays healthy, he looks ready to have a great year and if he does, he'll get drafted.

The rebounding will be fine. The problem last night is we hardly missed, so not many offensive rebound chances, and Duquesne was quick and perimeter oriented, so not only did they take a lot of longer shots, which lead to long rebounds, neutralizing the height, but also the long rebounds tend to go to the quicker team, which they obviously were. I actually consider it a positive we outrebounded them at all, all things considered.

For the purposes of media coverage and fan interest, ND is also in Chicago.
