PITTSBURGH, Pa.-- Host Duquesne scored 30 points off UND turnovers en route to a 64-38 win Wednesday afternoon at the Palumbo Center in non-conference action. The Dukes' avenged last season's loss (86-80) to UND at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center.

Duquesne's (3-1) Jocelyn Hall scored 19 points with nine steals, five rebounds and five assists to lead the home team's efforts. She was the benefactor of Duquesne's pressure defense that created 32 turnovers on the afternoon.

It was a 6-0 run to start the game and a 20-4 lead that set the tempo for the contest. UND (0-3) gave up a three-pointer on the first possession, but then held the Dukes without a make from beyond the arc for 13 straight attempts.

UND closed the gap to 11 at one point but Duquesne's Wumi Agunbiade made all of her first five attempts from the floor to help her to a 16-point night while Oditte Odisho made a pair of late threes to give her 10 points for the Dukes.

Megan Lauck scored 11 points to lead all North Dakota players. She added five rebounds while Katie Houdek chipped-in seven points. Madi Buck had six rebounds to lead North Dakota.
