Senior Marhold Finding His Way for Dukes


Zeise, Paul, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Jim Ferry has preached to his players the value of playing hard on every single possession on both sides of the floor.

It appears those messages have settled in with senior center Andre Marhold, who had his best game of the season Saturday when the Dukes lost to Saint Joseph's, 74-66.

Marhold posted his first career double-double against the Hawks - - 13 points and 11 rebounds -- and he battled the Hawks talented frontcourt, and as a result gave the Dukes a chance to win even though they ultimately fell short.

Before that game Marhold had been a bit inconsistent in his production and a bit of a disappointment given that he is one of the only experienced players on the roster.

Marhold knows that he has to play better for the Dukes to have a chance to improve and compete in the Atlantic 10 Conference, and he said Saturday it was a great game in which to build.

He said that the major difference Saturday and the reason for his success is simple -- his effort was much more consistent throughout the game, and that is something he needs to continue in order to produce the results he had against the Hawks.

"I was focused on every possession that game," Marhold said, "In the past I may have taken a couple of plays off here and there, but in that game I was focused on giving 100 percent effort on every single possession and it really showed up in my stats.

"That is something that is going to be my main focus now, going hard on every possession, not taking any off and just not worrying about anything else. I just need to play each possession."

Marhold said along with playing harder, he also did a better job of understanding angles and getting himself into position to receive entry passes, as well as getting into position for offensive rebounds.

Marhold and the Dukes (7-9, 0-2) will play at Massachusetts (11- 4, 1-1) tonight in an Atlantic 10 game that is crucial.

The Minutemen are streaking and have won eight of nine games while the Dukes have lost five of their past six.

Marhold said that he knows he will need to have another big game for the Dukes to have a chance to win because when he plays well and scores points, the Dukes can play a more two-dimensional offensive game. …
