Duquesne releases conference schedule

The Duquesne men's basketball team will play host to NCAA tournament teams La Salle, Jan. 12, and Saint Louis Jan. 22 as part of the 16-game Atlantic 10 schedule released Thursday.

The Dukes and second-year coach Jim Ferry open conference play Jan. 8 with a visit from Fordham. Four days later the Explorers, who reached the Sweet Sixteen this spring, visit the Dukes.

As part of the Atlantic 10 package, Duquesne will be on television a minimum of four times, including the home game against La Salle. Also announced Thursday was that the Dukes will play Dayton Feb. 22 at Consol Energy Center -- this in addition to the Nov. 30 game there against Pitt.

The Atlantic 10 Championship will be March 12-15 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with all 13 teams participating.
