AREA ROUNDUP ; Marshall Women Set School Record in Romp

Article excerpt

The Marshall women's basketball team set a school and Conference USA record with a 136-62 victory over Maine Fort Kent Tuesday afternoon in the Cam Henderson Center in Huntington. Marshall improves to 8-3 while Maine Fort Kent drops to 11-2. The Herd's 136 points established a Marshall basketball record for both the men's and women's programs. The new mark broke the old women's record of 127 from Dec. 22, 2014, against Brescia, which also happened to be the C-USA record for most points scored by one team in a game. The men's scoring record is 131 against Old Dominion from Feb. 27, 1968. Current head men's basketball coach Dan D'Antoni was a junior on that Herd squad.

The 74-point margin of victory was a program record, besting the old mark of 72 in a 100-28 Herd win over Bluefield State on Feb. 18, 1976.

Marshall's stat line of 55 made baskets, 88 shot attempts, 15 made three-pointers and 65 rebounds are all program-highs for the Matt Daniel era.

The Herd had six players finish in double-figures, led by sophomore Shayna Gore, who had her third 20-point game of the season with a team-high 25 points and added a career-high eight assists and five steals.
