Penn State Vs. Duquesne: Dukes Find Separation From Lions

Following the media timeout, the Dukes picked up two quick baskets, before blowing things open with an 11-0 run to gain a 48-39 lead.

Eric Evans has come on strong in the second half for the Dukes, as he now has a game-high 13 points. He becomes the team's second player in double-digits, as Sean Johnson is sitting with 10, despite being in foul trouble.

The Lions are struggling with the pressure of the Dukes, committing five turnovers already in the second half. 

Penn State is still controlling the boards, holding a 29-19 edge, but the Lions have gone ice-cold from the field. The opportunities down low are still there for them, but they must do a better job taking care of the ball. 

The game has really opened up to a frantic pace, something that will favor the Dukes down the stretch if it continues.

With 10:53 remaining in the contest, Duquesne holds a 50-42 advantage.
