When the Duquesne Dukes open the 2021-22 season, they’ll be doing so without four of the five members of their starting lineup from this season.
Sincere Carry and Lamar Norman both transferred during the season and senior center Mike Hughes announced that he would be looking to play professionally next season.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
This evening, the Dukes found out that Marcus Weathers will be moving on as well. The senior forward tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he will be entering the transfer portal and will be looking for another program to play for next season. In fact, the plan is for Weathers to transfer with his brother to the same school.
“Yes sir, I plan on entering the transfer portal and playing with my brother for our last year,” Weathers tells PSN. “We’re really trying to do something special together.”
Mike Weathers is a senior guard from Texas Southern University that has also entered his name in the portal. Mike Weathers helped lead Texas Southern to the NCAA Tournament, eventually losing to Michigan. For the season, Weathers averaged 16.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.
For the second consecutive season, Marcus Weathers was Keith Dambrot’s best player and was named to the All Atlantic-10 Second Team for the second consecutive season. The senior forward becomes Duquesne’s first two-time all-conference pick since Damian Saunders in 2011.
Weathers led the Dukes in scoring with 15.3 points per game and 7.7 rebounds, while also registering five double-doubles this season.
Since transferring from Miami (Ohio), the Kansas native scored 1,014 points in 79 games with Duquesne.
