A nice Thomas Assembly Center crowd of 4,000+ was on hand for the Dogs' drumming of the Thundering Herd (dat). The backers of Michael White's team saw the local crew fall behind 22-9 midway through the first half before closing out that first stanza on a 35-8 run.
Marshall made a mild move to trim Tech's advantage to 11 points on a Ryan Taylor jumper with 9:45 to play. Michale Kyser put a stop to any nonsense believed possible from the Herd hierarchy by depositing a jumper in the cup and throwing down a jam to stretch the lead back to 15 and rile the crowd into a frenzy.
Raheem Appleby and Kyser each finished with a dozen.
