Behind a suffocating defense and a barrage of 3-pointers, Duquesne earned its fourth consecutive win in the women's City Game Saturday, topping Pitt 70-61.

Duquesne's Belma Nurkic led all scorers with 18 points, and shot 5-of-8 from beyond the 3-point arc. Three other Dukes scored in double-figures, and Jocelyn Floyd chipped in 11 rebounds. The win was Duquesne's (8-1) seventh in a row.

Asia Logan posted a double-double for Pitt (6-3), with 15 points and 10 rebounds. The Panthers closed the deficit to two in the second half, but couldn't tie the game or take the lead.
