Marshall hits FTs, knocks off Southern Miss 88-84

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Elijah Pittman scored 22 points, D.D. Scarver added 19 and Marshall hit 9 of 10 free throws in the final 30 seconds to knock off Southern Mississippi 88-84 Tuesday night, snapping a 2-game skid and splitting the season series.

The Thundering Herd (13-17, 6-9 Conference USA) avenged a 102-46 drubbing Jan. 23 despite a career-high 35-point effort by the Golden Eagles' Dwayne Davis.

Marshall, which ranks ninth in the league standings, shot 64% in the first half (16 of 25) and led by nine points early in the second.

However, the second-place Golden Eagles (22-8, 11-4), who came in having won 4 of 5 games, rallied to pull ahead 74-73 on Neil Watson's 3-pointer.

Tied for the eighth time, at 79-79 with 1:03 left, Nigel Spikes made two free throws, Scarver hit four straight and Pittman was 3 of 4, his final foul shot missing with 1 second left.
