RADFORD, Va. (AP)—Aaron Jackson scored a career-high 36 points to lead Duquesne to a 94-75 victory over Radford on Wednesday night.

The Dukes (5-2) went on a 10-0 run midway through the first half to break open a 22-21 game and took a 51-40 lead into halftime.
Radford (3-5) drew within six points at 76-70 with 5:43 left, but Duquesne scored seven straight points, including a 3-pointer by Jackson.
Damian Saunders added 11 points and Bill Clark had 10 for the Dukes.
Martell McDuffy led the Highlanders with 21 points, while Artsiom Parakhouski had a double-double with 17 points and 20 rebounds—nearly half of Radford’s 43 total rebounds. Kenny Thomas added 14 points and Joey Lynch-Flohr had 12.
