Marquette Career

1921-22

It requires unusual skill to command a team properly on the field of action adn Duford or “Dukes,” as he is familiarly known, demonstrated his right to captain the Blue and Gold quintet by his proficiency in every aspect of the game. Duford was able to hold down the forward, guard or center positions to good advantage and while he was not the individual star of the team, his work stood out brilliantly, not in any particular contest, but throughout the season's long schedule.

This was Duford's third year as a Marquette basketeer and the experience he has had stood him in good stead for discovering the weak points of opponents. Very few of his opponents succeeded in making baskets through his guard, while he managed to score in every game.
