Marshall beats High Point 109-76
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP)—Damier Pitts and Tyler Wilkerson scored 18 points apiece, leading Marshall to its seventh-straight win with a 109-76 rout of High Point on Sunday night.
The game was postponed from its original 2 p.m. start time due to poor road conditions and sever weather in the area, but it didn’t seem to bother Marshall on the court.
Marshall (9-1) broke open an early 9-7 game with an 11-0 run that put the game out of reach midway through the opening quarter. Marshall led 42-26 at halftime and put the game away with a 22-9 run in the second.
Wilkerson also added 10 rebounds for Marshall, which is off to its best start since 2000-01. The Thundering Herd improved their all-time record against High Point to 4-0. Hassan Whiteside, who recorded Marshall’s first ever triple-double on Dec. 16, scored 13 and grabbed 10 boards.
Nick Barbour led the Panthers (4-5) with 26 points.
