We will have more on Marshall's 83-76 loss to Marshall tomorrow but, I wanted to draw your attention to something posted earlier this week.
Discovered by the Charleston Daily Mail's Chuck McGill and dubbed by this blog, the McGill Matrix is a set of parameters Marshall's basketball team must achieve to win games. The parameters are shoot above 42.5% and out rebound the opponent.
Marshall only reached one of those goals tonight, shooting 44.4% but, losing the rebounding battle 33-31. As with all eight losses this season MU failed to meet both parameters of the McGill Matrix.
Look for the Marshall Thundering Blog to follow this quintessential stat as the season continues.
