NEW YORK (AP) - Terry Allen scored a career-high 27 points, Kendall Anthony added 23 and Richmond ran away from Duquesne to advance to the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament with a 76-64 victory on Thursday night.

The seventh-seeded Spiders (19-13) snapped a four-game losing streak and set up a third game this season with crosstown rival and 23rd-ranked VCU on Friday at Barclays Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets. VCU won both regular-season meetings.

Ovie Soko led 10th-seeded Duquesne (13-17) with 23 points. The Dukes haven't won an A-10 tournament game since 2009

The Dukes hung with the Spiders for a half, 32-26. Richmond separated with 16-8 run to start the second half. Allen's 3 from the corner put the Spiders up 16 with 12:23 left.

The 5-foot-8 Anthony swished a straight-on 3 with 10:24 left to make it 55-34 and Richmond coasted into the next round from there.
