Spikes getting it done for Herd

Nov. 26, 2012 @ 09:44 PM

HUNTINGTON — Nigel Spikes is a difference-maker for the Marshall University men’s basketball team.

Spikes is a player who can dominate games without scoring a lot because he plays good defense and collects rebounds.

“He’s playing with a lot of confidence right now,” Marshall head coach Tom Herrion said.

Marshall (3-3) will anticipate Spikes doing his thing Wednesday when Morehead State (4-2) visits for a 7 p.m. game in Cam Henderson Center. The schools roughly one hour apart on I-64 haven’t played since 2007, but are getting reacquainted in a four-game series.

Morehead State won at home Monday against Norfolk State, 73-67.
