West Virginia gets win against Marshall in blow out - Recap, Box score

West Virginia went 12-for-25 from three-point range and crashed the glass for 15 offensive rebounds during an impressive offensive performance. "We won. We had the passion of West Virginia people there passion of Marshall people there".

The Herd was leading 18-11 before a 23-2 run by West Virginia gave them a 14-point lead 34-20.

Marshall: It wasn't 3-point shooting that was the problem.

As of Sunday morning, 64% of the betting tickets that were wagered at online sportsbooks were on the Thundering Herd to cover the spread.

The dominant stretch gave West Virginia a lead they would not relinquish. Carter had 17 points in the second half.

"The annual basketball contest serves to promote goodwill among West Virginians", Woelfel said.

But this was decided in the first 20 minutes thanks to West Virginia's dominant run to take control. Perhaps a bit rattled by the press and annoyed by the refs, the Marshall bench was assessed a warning at one point in the half.

"Don't matter", guard Jevon Carter said. I think it should be played.

"They don't want to play us", Marshall coach Dan D'Antoni said Friday.

The star of the Herd, Jon Elmore, could only manage three points on 1/5 shooting in the first half. Oklahoma scored 73 points, had just eight assists and turned the ball over 15 times.

The governor says he'll flip a coin with athletic director Mike Hamrick of Marshall and Shane Lyons of WVU to determine which cheering section he'll sit with during the first and second half.

Villanova will take on West Virginia in the next round of March Madness, after the Mountaineers beat Marshall on Sunday. Highlighted was a 5-6 run on threes in the early second half that removed any thoughts of a comeback and sent the West Virginia crowd into early celebration mode. The final score was 85-68.

"This is what we came to do", said Carter, a former IL high school star who scored 28 points and had five assists, four steals and only one turnover.

Lamont West had a big first half contributing nine points and six rebounds. The point guard is scoring 17.1 points per game, and dishing out more than 6 assists per game. West Virginia only faced a No. 12 and No. 13 seed, but the Mountaineers never let off the gas the entire weekend. They also out-rebounded Marshall 46-29.

"That's typical for him", said WVU head coach Bob Huggins.

Marshall scored 71 points. "He just didn't know where to throw the ball and ended up causing him to turn the ball over", West Virginia guard James Bolden said. Penava added six rebounds and six assists to his stat line. For Marshall, it was. This is the Thundering Herd's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1987.

What Carter did on Friday in the first-round of the East Region against Murray State is simply what Huggins expects.

As Hamrick reflected on the meaning, West Virginia - the only other Division I basketball program in the state - took the floor at San Diego State's Viejas Arena.

Marshall will look to advance to their first-ever Sweet Sixteen, where they would join fellow double-digit seed Loyola Chicago.
