Richmond used a 14-2 run to take a nine-point lead late in the second half, and that was enough to eventually down Duquesne, 101-90, Saturday night at the Robins Center in Richmond, Va.

Duquesne bounced back early from a 10-point deficit and tied things at 33 apiece with a Mike Lewis II 3-pointer before Isiaha Mike went to work and canned a 3 to give the Dukes a 40-39 lead with 3:20 left in the first half, capping a run that saw Duquesne make 9 of 10 shots. But ShawnDre’ Jones hit back-to-back jumpers down the stretch and gave Richmond a 46-44 advantage heading into the halftime locker room.
