This was the third game of the night for me and maybe the best of the three. The Roadrunners (12-122. 5-5 Conf USA) was able to hit their season average of 81 in this one and more importantly posted the win. Marshall(14-8, 5-4 Conf ) kept it close the entire game but faded out near the end.
The Roadrunners connected on 43.2% of their shots, 31.8% from three but struggle from the free throw line 33.3%. Leading the way in the win was,Jhivvan Jackson(San Juan, Puerto Rico) with 23 points. He received help from,Nick Allen(Surprise, AZ)13 points and 9 boards. Leading the bench unit with 12 points was,Keaton Wallace(Dallas, TX) In all 4 bench players got floor time and they scored 25 points.
For Marshall the night ended in a loss, where they shot 46% from the field. Leading the was with 23 points was, Jon Elmore(Charleston, W.VA.)He also had 13 boards.
