PITTSBURGH -- Melquan Bolding scored 32 points and Duquesne shook off a playground game-like pace and a second-half deficit to beat Fordham 111-100 on Friday, making the Rams the first Atlantic 10 team in 17 years to lose every conference game.
Brenton Butler scored 29 points, Chris Gaston had 21 and Alberto Estwick added 20, but Fordham (2-26, 0-16) -- which hasn't won since Dec. 8 -- lost its 21st in a row overall and finished 0-16 in the Atlantic 10. The last A-10 team to go winless during a conference season was St. Bonaventure in 1992-93, when the league had eight teams.
Eric Evans added 23 points and Bill Clark had 20 for Duquesne (16-14, 7-9), which still could play a first-round conference tournament home game. The Dukes need Charlotte, Massachusetts and Xavier to win home games on Saturday to host a game on Tuesday.
