LOWELL, Mass. – Before Christmas, Pat Duquette said his team decided they were through with anything that resembled moral victories and were going to get some real wins. He admits it was a bit of bravado at the time, something that doesn’t come easily to a guy as understated as he is.
“Sounds good now, doesn’t it?” Duquette quipped after his UMass-Lowell team beat Binghamton 62-55. “I wasn’t really sure what I was saying at the time, but it’s worked out well.”
