Duquesne Lady Dukes Basketball TicketsLocated in the heart of Pittsburgh, the Duquesne Lady Dukes have been a formidable competitor in NCAA women’s basketball for decades. Although they may not boast a wide range of trophies, they still have a rich and accomplished history, including producing some notable former WNBA players like Candace Futrell and 1998 WNBA Rookie of the Year runner-up Korie Hlede. Forever ingrained in the minds of fans is the memorable 97-76 blowout of the Seton Hall Pirates in 2016 during the Lady Dukes’ first-ever NCAA Division I tournament invitation. The fact that the triumphant and unforgettable 2016 campaign only ended in the second round at the hands of the Connecticut Huskies, the eventual champions, further exemplified the strength of the Lady Dukes. Whether the team is hosting a home game at the A. J. Palumbo Center or traveling on the road, the players always spare no effort and give their all to their fans.
