AP - Sports

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) DeAndre Kane scored 13 points as Marshall defeated Tulane 63-44 Wednesday night in a Conference USA game to snap a four-game losing streak.

The margin of victory was the Thundering Herd's largest in the series while the Green Wave's point total was a season low.

Dennis Tinnon grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Marshall (14-8, 5-3), which had a 45-22 edge off the glass. The Thundering Herd came in tied for third in the NCAA (41.4 per game) and had 20 offensive boards to Tulane's five.

The Green Wave (14-8, 2-6) led 10-5 at the 15:41 mark, then made only two baskets in the next 13:24 as Marshall built a 33-14 lead. After an 8-2 Tulane run, the Thundering Herd led 35-22 at the break.

Marshall maintained a cushion of at least 10 points in the second half.

Ricky Tarrant and Jordan Callahan led the Green Wave with 11 points apiece.
