Hawks Men's Basketball Loses Again 52-50 to Duquesne

Posted:

IOWA CITY(KWWL) Bill Clark's 3-pointer with 11 seconds left Tuesday night gave Duquesne a 52-50 victory over Iowa in the CBE Classic.

It's the first victory for the Dukes (2-0) over a Big Ten team since they beat Illinois in 1973, and their first victory in 10 tries in a Big Ten arena.

Duquesne trailed, 50-49, when Clark fired from the corner. The ball spun around the basket and stuck, giving the 6-foot-5 junior a game-high 20 points.

Anthony Tucker missed a short shot for Iowa (0-2), but the Hawkeyes scrambled for the loose ball and got a timeout with eight-tenths of a second remaining. B.J. Monteiro blocked Eric May's shot at the buzzer to preserve the victory.

Iowa is 0-2 for the first time since the 1970-71 season. The Hawkeyes lost to Texas-San Antonio at home on Sunday.
