Sixth-year senior Vanessa Abel's college basketball career is over.

Two days after rallying Duquesne to victory, Abel scored a team-high 14 points, had five steals and recorded three assists against just one turnover, but the Dukes squandered a six-point second-half lead in losing, 61-54, at Bowling Green on Saturday in the second round of the WNIT.

The Dukes (24-8) shot just 35 percent from the field and 45 percent from the free throw line.

Forward Wumi Agunbiade scored 12 points, and forward Orsi Szecsi added 11 for Duquesne before fouling out.

Forward Jill Stein led Bowling Green with 16 points.
