Marshall puts 5 in double figures in 98-88 win over Ohio

Campbell's 29 points, 16 rebounds not enough

HUNTINGTON, W. Va. – Marshall shot 48.4 percent and made 25 free throws in handing Ohio its first loss of the season, 98-88, on Wednesday night at the Cam Henderson Center.

Antonio Campbell had 29 points and 16 rebounds, but it was not enough. Jon Elmore led five Marshall players in double figures with 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The Thundering Herd (5-1) led 42-38 after the first half, but the Bobcats (4-1) began the second half with a 9-0 run to take the lead. Campbell and Jaaron Simmons had baskets to tie the game before Gavin Block knocked down a 3-pointer to give Ohio the lead. A Campbell layup extended the Bobcats’ lead to 47-42 only two minutes into the second half.

But it did not last. With Ohio leading 49-45, Austin Loop hit a 3-pointer before a Ryan Taylor layup with 15:46 remaining put Marshall back in front. After Campbell tied the game again with a free throw and then with a layup, Taylor put the Thundering Herd ahead. A Kenny Kaminski 3-pointer gave Ohio the lead for the last time, 55-54, with 13:29 remaining.

Taylor followed with two free throws, Stevie Browning hit a layup and Elmore hit a jumper for a 6-0 run that put Marshall on top for good. An Elmore 3-pointer with 6:06 left gave the heard an 82-68 lead, and a Loop trey with 4:30 left made it 87-71.

Marshall led early in the first half before a Rodney Culver free throw gave Ohio a 15-14 lead at the 11:21 mark in the first half. It was the Bobcats’ only lead of the first half, other than at 4-2. Ajdin Penava scored a bucket to put the Herd back in front and they held the lead the rest of the half, going up as much as 34-25 with an 8-0 run.

Despite playing through the flu, Jordan Dartis had 18 points and seven rebounds in 36 minutes, and Kenny Kaminski played through a shoulder injury to score 13 points in 20 minutes. Simmons had 11 points and seven assists. Jason Carter had seven points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists in 21 minutes.

Taylor finished with 17 points, Browning had 16, Loop scored 15 points, and Penava tallied 10 points for Marshall. Taylor added 11 rebounds and three blocks, while Browning had four steals.

Ohio was 31 of 74 (41.9 percent) from the field and 17 of 22 at the foul line. The Bobcats had 16 offensive rebounds and 14 turnovers.

Former Ohio coach Tim O’Shea brings Bryant to The Convo at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
