Marshall Basketball: ETSU Sinks Herd 88-78

Stymied by East Tennessee State's zone defense, Marshall fell to the Buccaneers 88-78 Saturday night at Freedom Hall.

East Tennessee's zone caused the Herd to take quick shots, including 30 beyond the 3-point line which they only converted six. Marshall's defense was as leaky as the Buccaneers was effective. ETSU (3-5, 0-0) shot over 50% (30-56) from the floor and held a 16 point advantage early in the second half. 

The Herd was lead by 19 points from point guard Kareem Canty who also recorded six assist. After being ejected from Thursday's win over Western Kentucky, Elijah Pittman started yesterdays game and scored 16 points.

Marshall (4-3, 0-0) returns to action on December 5th at Vanderbilt (4-2, 0-0)
