Surprising Upset: Duquesne Stuns BYU Basketball in NCAA Tournament

The BYU basketball team had an amazing season, but the season ended with a regrettable 71-67 loss to the eleventh-ranked Duquesne team. Both sides were at each other’s necks consistently from tip-off.

Duquesne had a quick start, leading 9-0 in the first half. They continued their confidence into the second half of the game and went on an 8-2 run to take a commanding fifteen point lead.

Throughout the entire game, Duquesne made BYU play at its tempo. BYU took only twenty-four three-point shots all night long, of which they made eight.
