Duquesne released the team’s 14-game non-conference basketball schedule this morning, one that has some challenges but doesn't look overly daunting for the Dukes in Jim Ferry’s first season as head coach.
The schedule is highlighted by a pair of games at Consol Energy Center: the first against Pitt for the 81st City Game on Dec. 5 followed by a game against West Virginia on Dec. 11.
The team will also host three games at the A.J. Palumbo Center for the Legends Classic from Nov. 19-21 with an opening round game Nov. 11-15 at one of four possible schools: Georgetown, Georgia, Indiana or UCLA.
