Video: VCU loses overtime heartbreaker on senior night to Duquesne 80-77 [INSIDER]

Score: VCU 80, DUQ 77
Recap: As VCU hosted Duquesne Tuesday evening, the rams looked to make the seniors last home game at the Stu a memorable one.  Unfortunately, it would be a game everyone would rather forget.  VCU's largest lead was 12 with 8 minutes left to go in the game.  That's about when the well ran dry for the rams and Duquesne turned the corner and forced overtime at the Siegel Center, a difficult  task. Junior Marcus Santos-Silva led all rams in scoring with 24.
