Duquesne Dukes Basketball TicketsThe Duquesne Dukes saw significant improvement last year under Keith Dambrot. The 2018-19 season was highlighted by the Dukes' winning records overall and in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Now, the Dukes' team is coming back for the 2019-20 season after spending the summer preseason playing in the Bahamas. Fans should anticipate exciting play from Sincere Carry and Baylee Steele. Baylee Steele is new to the Dukes this year, hailing from Utah Valley. Almost all of last year's roster will be playing this season, so there should be chemistry between the players. Last year's leading scorer, Eric Williams, will be missed. Dambrot's standard lineup is a strategy of two players in the frontcourt and three in the backcourt. Duquesne is participating in the Junkanoo Jam this year, so some of the team's early-season games will be in the Bahamas. When in the Bahamas, the Dukes will play against Indiana State, Air Force and Loyola Marymount. The most competition should come from an early home game against Lipscomb.
