PITTSBURGH -- Mike Lewis II scored 29 points on 10-of-12 shooting, Eric Williams Jr. added a career-high 24 points to go with 11 boards and Duquesne beat Maryland-Eastern Shore 86-61 on Monday night.
Lewis was 6 of 7 from 3-point range and Williams was 4 of 6. It was Williams' third double-double of the season.
The Hawks (3-6) made just 8 of 28 shots in the first half and 1 of 10 from 3-point range. Duquesne shot 55.6 percent in the half and led 42-23 at the break. The deficit got no closer than 17 in the second.
Texas junior guard Andrew Jones is a limited participant in practice as he continues to regain strength following his diagnosis of leukemia, coach Shaka Smart said Monday.
Four-star point guard Jalen Gaffney made a verbal commitment to UConn on Monday, giving the Huskies their second ESPN 100 guard in the past two weeks.
Watts is one of the most dynamic scoring guards in the country and looks to develop his game under coach Tom Izzo's tutelage.
