PITTSBURGH -- Ronald Roberts Jr. posted his sixth double-double of the season and Saint Joseph's held off Duquesne 74-66 Saturday night in Atlantic 10 Conference action.
Roberts had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawks (9-5, 1-1), who have won four of their last five games.
Saint Joseph's led by 11 early, but the Dukes (7-9, 0-2) fought back to tie it at 51 with 9:35 left on Quevyn Winters' 3-pointer. Roberts answered with a three-point play, then Langston Galloway, who led the Hawks with 16 points, added two free throws.
After Duquesne got to 56-55, Papa Ndao and Galloway hit back-to-back 3-pointers.
The Dukes kept threatening, closing to within two points twice, the last time at 66-64 with 2:45 to go. Galloway's back-to-back jumpers and the Hawks' 4-of-8 shooting from the free-throw line sealed it.
Andre Marhold had 13 points and 11 boards for Duquesne, which has lost four straight.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
