Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot left looks to the court as his team plays against Pitt during the first half Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, in Pittsburgh.

Duquesne’s last game was a 19-point comeback victory on the road at George Mason. And it wasn’t the first of its kind in 2019.

It was the seventh.

That’s right, seven times this year Keith Dambrot’s Dukes have responded from double-digit deficits. Three of those were in the second half. Two of those were on the road.

That 19-point charge against George Mason matched a 19-point scramble at home against Rhode Island on Jan. 30.

Dambrot’s players also rebounded from 18 down at Fordham, 18 down at home against Longwood, 15 down at St. Joseph’s, 14 down against Illinois-Chicago and 12 down at home against Eastern Kentucky.

I guess aside from that, their games haven’t been very exciting.

In today’s Sided.co podcast, I talked to Dambrot and some of his players about how the boys on the Bluff have managed to counter-punch so well.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
