The Duquesne Dukes released their Atlantic 10 schedule Tuesday. Highlighting the conference schedule will be nationally-televised games against Xavier and Richmond.
The Dukes begin A-10 play against the foe that dashed their hopes of postseason play in 2010, the Saint Joe's Hawks on January 4 at the A.J. Palumbo Center. After another home tilt with Saint Bonaventure January 7, the Dukes will have a tough test when they head to Cincinnati to face Xavier on January 11 in a game that will be broadcasted nationally on CBS College Sports.
The Dukes' other national TV game will come against the Richmond Spiders when they come to Pittsburgh on February 4th. That game will be on ESPNU. Their slate also features three games that can be picked up by in regional syndication: February 11 at St. Bonaventure, February 18 at Temple, and February 22 at home against the Dayton Flyers.
The Flyers, Bonnies and St. Louis Billikens will be the three teams who Duquesne will face twice.
