Duquesne trailed the entire way despite inching closer and closer to a comeback in what turned out to be an 87-81 loss to Saint Louis inside Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, Mo. Saturday.

Down by three with eight seconds left, Duquesne had time to run one play to force overtime, but Mike Crawford fouled Rene Castro to avoid a 3-point attempt.
