Herd hoops at home Saturday

Nov. 23, 2012 @ 04:16 PM

HUNTINGTON — Playing at home might be just what the Marshall Thundering Herd needs.

Marshall, 2-3 to open the men’s basketball season, is 0-2 in true road games and 1-1 at neutral sites. The Herd’s only win at home was Nov. 9 against Longwood.

The schedule turns in Marshall’s favor beginning with a 7 p.m., Saturday, contest against the Nevada Wolf Pack (3-1) in Cam Henderson Center. The next three games are at home and six of the next 10 within a 125-mile radius of campus before Conference USA play begins Jan. 9 with another home game against Tulsa.

No games are easy, but playing at home is an advantage.
