HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall swimming and diving will look to rebound from a loss last week when it travels to take on Duquesne for a dual-meet Saturday at 1 p.m.

Saturday’s meet will wrap-up the regular season for the Thundering Herd (5-6). It will participate in the Conference USA Championships in Houston, Texas Feb. 20-23.

Marshall was defeated by Liberty on the road last weekend, 119-81. Kaley Gregory paced the Herd with two victories with sophomore Kacey Preun also picking up a win. Preun has a team-best 10 wins this season.

Duquesne most recently was a winner against Mount St. Mary’s on the road by a score of 149-105. The Dukes other wins this season have come against Butler and Xavier. Duquesne is 3-6 on the year and this will also conclude their regular-season schedule.

This will be the fifth all-time meeting between the two schools. MU is 3-1 all-time, but the Dukes took the most recent meeting in 2007, 117-88.

There will not be any diving event during Saturday’s meet.

Saturday’s dual-meet will be streamed for free and available through HerdZone.com.
