Southern Miss 102, Marshall 46

Jan. 23, 2013 @ 09:16 PM

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Southern Miss blasted Marshall, 102-46, in a Wednesday night Conference USA men’s basketball game.

Marshall scored the first basket of the game, but Southern Miss went on a 21-0 run fueled by many Thundering Herd turnovers and raced to a 53-17 halftime lead in Reed Green Coliseum.

The game was scheduled for telecast on WCHS-TV 8, but a technical problem kept it off the air.

“We are unable to broadcast the Marshall-Southern Miss basketball game due to technical difficulties in Mississippi,” an alert posted on www.wchstv.com said. “We apologize for any inconveniences.”
