The A10 is not having a great year. It looks like it will be at most a two bid league and neither of these teams are those two teams.
Richmond is one of the program the conference normally leans on but they are having a down year. These teams met once this season, Richmond won in overtime.
The Dukes might have the better overall record but they are stumbling into this conference tournament – just one one in their last seven games.
Duquesne is led by quietly productive freshman guard Eric Williams, who leads the team in scoring and rebounding. Close to 9 boards per game is impressive at 6’5″
Three other backcourt players score between 12 and 15 ppg for the perimeter based Dukes. Unfortunately this is not a strong shooting team.
They rotate a bunch of bodies up front but do not expect much from any of them. Tydus Verhoeven is good at protecting the rim though, more than 2 blocks a game for the 6’8″ freshman.
The Spiders are going to finish with their first sub .500 season in a decade. Chris Mooney just hasn’t been able to get his team over the hump this season.
They have won their last two games to sneak ahead of the Dukes in the A10 standings. It also gives them a favourable matchup to advance their season by a day.
Grant Golden is a true power forward/center and scores mostly inside. For his size he should rebound better but he can be a tough matchup for teams.
He is one of five double-digit scorers on this balanced team. De’Monte Buckingham stands out, not just for his great name but also because he leads the team in rebounding at just 6’4″.

Free Duquesne Dukes vs. Richmond Spiders NCAAB Prediction:
The Spiders are the favourite in what is essentially a pick’em game to be decided by just one possession.
That seems like fair value. They are the better brand and probably the better team even though they have not played like it all season.
