PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The CBI record book exploded as Duquesne and Omaha exchanged baskets before the Dukes emerged with a 120-112 win.

The 120 points scored by Duquesne and the 112 points scored by Omaha are the top two scoring outputs in the nine-year history of the CBI. The previous single game record was 102 points scored by Creighton in a 2011 match with Davidson. The record for combined points in a game was also set in that affair as Davidson tallied 92 points.

Duquesne (17-16) was led by Derrick Colter who registered 28 points, nine assists, and six rebounds. Jordan Robinson came off the bench to tally 17 points while Eric James, L.G. Gill, and Micah Mason each netted 16 points.

The Dukes made the most of their chances, connecting on 37-of-59 (.627) field goals, including 12-of-24 from three. They also made 34-of-44 (.773) free throws.

Omaha (18-14), which trailed 51-32 at the half and proceeded to score 80 second half points (also a CBI record), received 37 points from Devin Patterson, who recorded the second-most points ever in a CBI game. Tim Smallwood had 20 points, Jake White scored 15 points, Randy Reed tallied 13 points, and Tra-Deon Hollins and Tre’Shawn Thurman had 11 points each with Hollins also posting seven rebounds and nine assists, and Thurman pulling down seven rebounds.

Duquesne will play at Morehead State, an 84-80 winner at Siena, on Monday.
