With his team down two points as the clock clicked towards zero DeAndre Kane's jumper clanked off the rim, sealing a 70-68 Ohio victory and Marshall's first loss of the season. Marshall trailed by nine at the half and used a 13 to three run in the final six minutes to set up Kane's game winning attempt.
The Herd struggled mightily on defense all night, allowing Ohio to shot 50% from the floor. Beyond poor defense Marshall only out rebounded the Bobcats by one (36-35) and committed 13 turnovers, six by Kane. Marshall also left a ton of points on the free throw line, barley shooting over 50% (21-38).
In a Jekyll and Hyde night Kane lead MU with 17 points. Three other Herd players, Dennis Tinnon (12), Robert Goff (11), and Damier Pitts (10), all scored in double digits. Tinnon secured a double double with 14 rebounds while Pitts chipped in seven assist.
