    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Kojo Mensah scored 17 points and Shawn James had 10 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks as Duquesne rallied from its first second-half deficit of the season to beat Niagara 76-65 on Saturday.

    Kieron Achara had 12 points and Bill Clark added 10 for Duquesne, which is off to a 5-0 start for first time since 1985-86.

    James, who blocked 12 shots in a Duquesne victory Tuesday at Oakland, Mich., has 29 blocks for the season.

    Charron Fisher led Niagara (2-1) with 25 points and Stanley Hodge had 18.

    Niagara led 45-37 early in the second half before Duquesne pulled ahead for good, 58-57, on two free throws by Achara with 8:11 remaining.
