Marshall swept from C-USA tourney

TULSA, Okla. — Ricky Tarrant scored 21 points but none were bigger than his 3-pointer with 7 seconds left to give Tulane a 66-64 victory over Marshall in the first round of the Conference USA tournament Wednesday night.

Josh Davis added 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for Tulane (19-13), which beat Marshall 91-75 back on Feb. 6 in the two teams’ only other meeting of the season.

The Green Wave trailed 29-20 at halftime but didn’t take its first lead in the second half until Davis converted a three-point play to give Tulane a 54-53 lead with 5:10 to play.

DeAndre Kane led Marshall (13-19) with 22 points and Dennis Tinnon scored 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds. The Thundering Herd scored 40 points in the paint but surrendered 22 second-chance points off 17 offensive rebounds for Tulane.

Tulane advances to the second round of the C-USA tournament and will play top seeded Memphis on Thursday.

UTEP 70, Marshall 59

TULSA, Okla. — Anete Steinberga scored 14 of her game-high 20 points in the second half as fifth-seeded Texas-El Paso moved past No. 12 seed Marshall, 70-59, in day one of the 2013 Conference USA Women’s Basketball Championship Wednesday afternoon at the Tulsa Convention Center.

Marshall led once at 2-0 and that was it, as the Miners (21-9) advanced to play Alabama-Birmingham today.

The lone bright spot for Marshall (9-21) was sophomore guard Shay Weaver, who broke the Herd’s single season record for three-pointers with 69, passing Kizzy Hart’s mark of 68 set in 2010.

Chukwuka Ezeigbo led Marshall with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Suporia Dickens added 15 points.

When Marshall plays again in the 2013-14 season, Princeton senior McKenzie Akers will be part of the team.
