"I really thought this game was a lot like the other game," said Herd coach Ron Jirsa. "I think we started a little slow but once we got going, we ran into an open court game. I think that is becoming a strong point for us. When we do that, we have the ability to make things happen."

"That being said, we still need to work harder and be more effective on defense."

Marshall opened up a back-and-forth affair at the 10:54 mark in the first half with an 11-0 run that was capped off on an Anderson alley-oop dunk from Joe Miles to make the score 33-23 four minutes later. The Herd pieced together a 13-3 run to end the first half to make the score 63-42 at the halftime break.

In the second half, the Herd's lead grew to as many as 36 points.

The Herd had 46 points in the paint, compared to 16 for the Pioneers, and held a 23-0 advantage in fast break points.

For the game, the hot-shooting Herd tallied a 64.1 percentage (41-64), while Glenville State shot 38.3% (23-60) from the floor. Marshall also out-rebounded GSC 37 to 29.

Larry Skinner led the Pioneers with 23 points, while Justice Graham added 11.
