Penn State Vs. Duquesne: Dukes and Lions Headed For Close Finish

The Dukes and Lions have continued their second-half chess match, with the Dukes still holding the lead.

The hustle from Duquesne has really shown as of late, as the loose balls and rebounds that got away from them early in the contest are now going their way.

The foul situation is favoring Penn State, as Duquesne has comitted eight fouls to the Lions' four.

Duquesne has had a couple chances for daggers, but missed three-pointers and dropped passes on layups have allowed Penn State to stick around.

Eric Evans currently sits with a game-high 15 points while Penn State's Tim Frazier is right behind with 13.

While the momentum has been with the Dukes, Penn State is just a few big plays from getting control back.

With 3 minutes remaining, Duquesne leads Penn State 59-52. Keep it here at SB Nation Pittsburgh for updates down the stretch at CONSOL Energy Center.
