    PITTSBURGH -- Melquan Bolding hit a 3-pointer with 3.4 seconds remaining for Duquesne's only basket in the final 12 1/2 minutes and the Dukes withstood Andrew Nicholson's 29 points and a frantic St. Bonaventure comeback for a 70-69 victory Saturday night.

    The Dukes (10-9, 1-4) won for the first time in the Atlantic 10 despite seeing a 14-point lead at 50-36 evaporate as Nicholson scored 20 of his 29 points after halftime. The Bonnies (9-9, 2-3) led 68-64 following Malcolm Eleby's two free throws with 1:13 remaining.

    Damian Saunders, who scored 15 points, made three of four free throws after that to get Duquesne to within one. After Eleby made one of two at the line with 21.3 seconds to play, Duquesne ran the clock down until Bolding got free in the corner.
