The top-seeded Dukes defeated second-seeded VCU, 25-13, 25-18, 18-25, 25-23, and earn an automatic bid to the NCAA championship. Both teams were playing in their first A-10 championship match.

Duquesne awaits the NCAA Selection show, which airs at 9:30 p.m. Sunday on ESPNU. This was the first time since 2002 that Dayton or Saint Louis hasn't been the conference champion.
