Word on the Herd -- April 20, 2017
There are pitchers who attack hitters, and others who nibble around the plate throughout an at-bat. Marshall senior Jordan Dixon is certainly the former, and she pursues her on-the-field ambitions with the same directness.
The Marshall University baseball team features seven players from the states of Washington and Oregon, an increasingly important recruiting area for the Herd that dates back to current Major League pitcher Dan Straily.
Bob Gray Recognition Dinner, Alumni Game, Spring Schedule Opener and ID Showcase highlight busy weekend of soccer for Marshall.
The Marshall football program begins 15 practices over the next five weeks starting Tuesday afternoon. Doc Holliday discuss spring drills topics with the media Monday afternoon.
The Marshall University softball team is a series sweep away from setting the school record for consecutive wins. That same team is 21-4, the best start through 25 games in program history, and received five votes in this week’s Top 25 poll, the most ever for an MU softball team.
Marshall’s run in the Conference USA men’s basketball tournament lasted 73 hours and 34 minutes. The Herd was the only team to play on the first day and the last, a four-games-in-four-days journey that included consecutive games against the Nos. 3, 2 and 1 seeds.
Marshall men's basketball player Austin Loop has set program records on the court and in the classroom. Now the senior enters the Conference USA championship game while holding the memory and lessons of his father near.
In a 3-point heaving, record-setting, jaw-dropping shooting performance that smashed a Conference USA tournament record, Marshall ousted second-seeded Louisiana Tech, 93-77, here Friday afternoon at Legacy Arena and moved within one game of ending a three-decade NCAA tournament drought. The sixth-seeded Herd will face regular season champ Middle Tennessee in Saturday night’s final at 8:30.
Marshall’s season is still alive here in the Magic City.
Stevie Browning connected on four baskets in 94 seconds – three of which were 3-pointers – to flip a close Conference USA first round men’s basketball game into a double-digit lead in Marshall’s 89-74 win against Florida Atlantic on Wednesday here at Legacy Arena.
