Duquesne tops Lamar for Dambrot’s 450th career win

Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Michael Hughes had 17 points — 15 in the second half — and 10 rebounds as Duquesne defeated Lamar, 66-56, on Tuesday night for coach Keith Dambrot’s 450th career win.

The Dukes held Lamar scoreless over the final four minutes.

Sincere Carry added 16 points for the Dukes (2-0), Maceo Austin chipped in 15 and Baylee Steele had nine rebounds. Duquesne shot 26% in the first half but rallied to shoot 50% in the second half.

T.J. Atwood had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Cardinals (2-1). Davion Buster added 11 points, and V.J. Holmes had 10.

Lamar cut Duquesne’s 48-38 lead to 55-54, but Steele made a 3-pointer from the top of the key as the shot clock expired to put the Dukes up by four. Lamar would score just two more points the rest of the way.

This was Dambrot’s 37th win at Duquesne. The bulk of his 450 career wins, 305 of them, came in 13 seasons at Akron.

Duquesne faces Lipscomb at 7 p.m. Friday at their temporary home away from home, La Roche.
