Senior Chassidy Omogrosso (Blackhawk) is a two-year captain for the Duquesne women’s basketball team.

Duquesne seniors Chassidy Omogrosso and Kadri-Ann Lass, who have led the Dukes into the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament, were honored Thursday as the conference released its women’s basketball postseason honors.

Omogrosso, a Blackhawk graduate, was named to the A-10 second team. Lass, a native of Estonia, was selected on the third team, along with securing her second consecutive berth on the All-Defensive squad.

After receiving All-Rookie (2016) and first team (2018) honors earlier in her career, Omogrosso led the team in scoring this season with 12.3 points per game. She also is seventh in the conference with 62 3-pointers.

Lass picked up her fourth all-conference award after also being named to the All-Rookie team in 2016. She holds the school record with 278 career blocks in four seasons and is third on the team in scoring this season (11.1 points per game).

Duquesne (18-12) has won six games in a row on the way to a quarterfinal game against Saint Louis on Friday at Palumbo Center.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
