Atlantic 10 Tournament Bracket: St. Joe's Upsets Duquesne In Overtime

St. Joseph’s surprise A-10 tournament run continued today with a 93-90 overtime win over #4 seeded Duquesne. The Hawks now advance to the semifinals to face Dayton, who upset the #1 seeded Xavier earlier today.

St. Joe’s led by as many as 11 and held a three point lead inside of two minutes, but Duquesne fought back to take a lead with less than a minute left. With 22 seconds left Sean Johnson hit two free throws to give the Flyers a two point lead, but St. Joe forward Ronald Roberts would get free for a game tying dunk with 4 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

St Joe’s would build a six point lead in overtime, but once again Duquesne fought back… but this time they would only close the gap to 1 as Phil Martelli’s young Hawks squad claimed their second straight upset.

Sophomore guard Carl Jones led the Hawks with 28 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Ron Roberts scored 19 and Idris Hilliard supplied 18. Bill Clark and Damian Saunders both scored 21 for Duquesne.

St. Joe’s next faces Dayton in the semifinals tomorrow at 1 pm.
