The Toledo Rockets and Grand Valley State Lakers previously squared off at the Thanksgiving Duals with the dual coming down to the heavyweight match. Toledo ultimately won 28-21. The dual was much closer at the 2023 NCWA National Duals as both squads had key additions to the lineup that weren't present in November. As with the November dual, the match ultimately came down to the heavyweight match. #3 seeded Toledo won that match and consequently the dual to secure a 27-25 victory over #5 GVSU heading into Saturday's Quarterfinals.
