Herd halts skid, tops Tulane 63-44
HUNTINGTON — The Marshall Thundering Herd men’s basketball team stopped a four-game free-fall Wednesday, beating Tulane soundly, 63-44, at the Cam Henderson Center.
Four Herd players scored in double figures, including DeAndre Kane, who had a game high 13 points.
The Herd shot 40 percent from the floor, 41 percent from three-point range and an improved 62 percent from the free throw line.
Coach Tom Herrion kept his lineup limited, using only eight players until the waning minutes of the game.
The Green Wave of Tulane got out to a fast 10-5 lead, but the Herd controlled the game from there, leading by double digits for most of the contest.
Marshall got back to early season form on the boards, out-rebounding Tulane 45-22.
Next up for the Thundering Herd is a tough road game at Tulsa, then a trip to Orlando, Fla. to face UCF.
The Herd is now 14-8 on the season, and 5-3 in Conference USA play. Tulane drops to 14-8, 2-6 in C-USA.
