Raegan Moore scored 21 points, leading a balanced Duquesne scoring attack that saw five players score in double figures, as the Dukes went on the road and defeated VCU Wednesday night in an Atlantic 10 Conference game.

April Robinson added a career-high 20 points for Duquesne (14-6, 6-1), which won its fifth consecutive game. Wumi Agunbiade and Orsi Szecsi each had 13 points and nine rebounds.

After holding a one-point lead at halftime, the Dukes pulled away in the second half, going on a 13-2 run that ultimately gave them a 70-58 lead with 4:52 remaining.

In the second half, Duquesne held the Rams (16-4, 4-3) to 25.8 percent on field-goal attempts, which included 10 misses on 11 3-pointers. Conversely, Duquesne shot 40 percent from 3-point range for the game while also outrebounding VCU, 46-39.

For VCU, which made only 21 of 59 shots, the loss was its third in its past five games. Robyn Parks scored a game-high 24 points for the Rams.

The Dukes will remain on the road for their next two games -- at George Mason and at Richmond -- before returning home for a Feb. 5 matchup against George Washington.
