Besides playing Marshall on November 12th the WVU Tech basketball team has many Marshall connections. Last season former Kentucky and Marshall basketball player Adam Williams was a graduate assistant on Donnie Jones Thundering Herd staff. After Jones bolted for UCF Williams started looking for a new gig and landed on Bob Williams (no relation) WVU Tech staff as a full time assistant.
The Golden Bears also sport two former Marshall players on this years roster. After sitting out a season due to transferring from Western Carolina, Cam Miller averaged 7.6 minutes, 3.4 points, and 1.1 rebounds per game in limited action for Marshall last season. Searching for more playing time the Wheelersburg Ohio native transferred to WVU Tech for his senior year. Joining Miller in Montgomery is another Marshall transfer, Octavius Spann. Spann spent his first two years of college at Georgetown and transfer to Marshall after the 2006 – 2007 season. After sitting out a year Spann averaged 12.6 minutes and 2.6 points per game with the 2008 – 2009 Thundering Herd. Spann did not play for Marshall last season and has transferred to WVU Tech to exhaust his eligibility.
Marshall will host WVU Tech on Friday November 12th at the Henderson Center, game time is TBA.
