Marshall women lose at home to Houston

HUNTINGTON — After controlling a lead at halftime, Marshall was unable to capitalize against Houston and fell to the Cougars 71-63 on Sunday afternoon in the Cam Henderson Center.

The Thundering Herd dropped to 6-11 (0-4 C-USA) with the loss, while Houston improved to 8-8 (2-1 C-USA).

Suporia Dickens finished with 17 rebounds for Marshall (6-11, 0-5 C-USA), 18th best all-time in rebounds in a Marshall women’s game.

Erica Woods and Norrisha Victrum led the Herd offense with 14 points each. Woods added six rebounds and five assists.

Houston’s Porsche Landry led the Cougars (8-8, 2-1) with 24 points, going 7-for-12 from the field and 8-of-9 from the free throw line.

A majority of Houston’s points came from the free throw line. Off 25 fouls, the Cougars went 23-of-38 in free throws.

“It was a weird game,” commented Marshall coach Matt Daniel. “In free throws, we shot 15 and they shot 38. That is a lot of free throws. We played a lot of zone, because we got in foul trouble early.”
