Duquesne’s roster features 11 newcomers and four transfers. … Duquesne leads the all-time series 5-2. Tuesday is the teams’ first meeting since a 77-62 Irish victory on Feb. 8, 1995. … Junior power forward John Mooney leads the Irish in scoring (13.5 ppg.) and rebounding (8.8 rpg.). He’s had double doubles for points and rebounds the last two games. …After going 36-of-38 from the foul line in the season opener against UIC, Notre Dame is a combined 37-for-52 the last four.

QUOTING: “It’s a pretty good group.”
