PHILADELPHIA - Langston Galloway scored 24 of his game-high 26 points in the first half as Saint Joseph's ended Duquesne's three-game road win streak with a 84-75 victory at Hagan Arena.

The Hawks (11-5, 2-1) shot .714 in the first half in building a 52-20 lead.

Duquesne (8-7, 1-2) outscored Saint Joseph's 30-2 over the final 4:48 for the final margin.

Derrick Colter and Jerry Jones led Duquesne with 14 points each, with 26 of the 28 coming in the second half. Jones hit three of his four 3-pointers in the final 59 seconds.

Saint Joe's jumped out to a 12-0 lead as Duquesne missed its first seven shots. Galloway, who had six 3-pointers in the first half, hit his first five from beyond the arc as the Hawks built the lead to 37-11. The SJU lead reached 37 on Galloway's sixth 3-pointer with 3:23 left.

Micah Mason, who finished with nine points, hit all three of his 3-pointers in the first half as the Dukes shot .222.

"They blitzed us right out of the gate," said Duquesne coach Jim Ferry. "They didn't miss a shot. It felt like we were playing on our heels from the start of the game."

Despite the 32-point halftime deficit, the Dukes refused to quit, outscoring the Hawks 55-32 over the second 20 minutes.

Saint Joe's finished the game shooting .646. The Hawks went 17-of-27 from the 3-point arc. DU rallied to shoot .488 in the second half to bring its overall percentage to .386.

Duquesne finished with 18 assists on 27 field goals. DU turned it over just once and had 12 of its 17 steals in the second half.

Ovie Soko and Dominique McKoy added 10 points each for DU. Desmond Ridenour scored all eight of his points and recorded all six of his career-high assists after intermission.

"A halftime we said, `were are we going to go from here?,'" said Ferry. "Are we going to pack it in and quit and show our colors like that, or are we going to fight. We're not going pat ourselves on the back. We've got a lot to learn about our team and this is a step to learn."

Duquesne travels to Richmond to face VCU (13-4, 1-1) in a CBSSN nationally televised game on Saturday, Jan. 18.
