Grant scored 20 or more points 10 times, including four times in Atlantic 10 play. This is the most for a Duquesne player since former guard Micah Mason had 15 in the 2015-16 season. He is also the first Duquesne player to place on the Second Team All-Conference since forward Marcus Weathers did it in the 2020-21 season.

Clark transferred from Northwest Florida College in the offseason and played a great role defensively for the Dukes this season.
