RICHMOND, Va. - Behind an 81.8 percent shooting performance in the fourth quarter, the seventh seed Duquesne Dukes topped third seed Saint Joseph's, 78-63, in the Semifinals of the 2017 Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship on Saturday at the Richmond Coliseum.

Down by as many as 14 points in the first quarter, the Hawks (17-14) slowly chipped away at Duquesne's lead over the next two periods.

Trailing 38-29 entering the third quarter, Saint Joseph's used a 15-5 run to take its first lead of the game, 44-43, on a pair of free throws by sophomore Kristalyn Baisden with 51 seconds to go in the quarter.

Duquesne responded though as a pair of free throws by Conor Richardson at the end of the third helped spark a a 9-0 run that culminated with a jumper by Kadri-Ann Lass at 8:31 of the fourth to make it 52-44 in favor of the Dukes.

Saint Joseph's cut the lead to down five, 58-53, on a layup by junior Chelsea Woods with 4:59 to go, but that would be as close the game would get as Duquesne scored nine straight points from there en route to finishing 9-of-11 from the field and 14-of-15 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.

For the game, the Hawks shot 31 percent from the field (22-of-71), 11.1 percent from three-point range (2-of-18) and 77.3 percent from the foul line (17-of-22). Woods led three Hawks in double figures with a game-high 17 points and 10 rebounds. Senior Amanda Fioravanti added 16 points and nine rebounds, while sophomore Alyssa Monaghan finished with 16 points and four assists.

At the other end, Duquesne shot 51 percent from the field (25-of-49), 47.1 percent from behind the arc (8-of-17) and 95.2 percent from the foul line (20-of-21). Chassidy Omogrosso led five Dukes in double figures with 20 points.
