Marshall Head Coach Tom Herrion Quotes

OPENING STATEMENT

“We didn’t finish around the basket in the second half. We got out-rebounded by eight. That usually leads to failure. Can’t have 13 turnovers in the first half and then come back and have four. That’s a lack of consistency by us in what was obviously a very physical game. We’ll get better from this game, we will move forward. It’s December 5th. Just disappointed … I’m not sure if West Virginia beat us tonight, we contributed mightily to the loss. I don’t mean that with any disrespect to them.”

MARSHALL’S TURNOVERS

“We got shook. We knew they were going to pressure us. We turned it over every which way possible. We talked about playing low, playing strong with the ball, but we got shook and sped up. It was clearly a bad way to go through that stretch near the end of the first half. We had a lot of guys contribute to it … a lot.”

BEING CLOSE LATE IN THE GAME

“The kids played hard. 37 percent field goal percentage defense. You get outscored from the foul line. They shot the heck out of it from the foul line, we didn’t. Our half-court defense was pretty good, minus putting them on the foul line. And us not equaling it out and converting our free throws.”

ON WVU HAVING 16 FREE THROWS IN A ROW

“Don’t know … I just know we didn’t hit 16 in a row.”

OFFENSIVE EFFORT

“We missed baskets, point blank, and we missed open threes. Our shot selection was not atrocious or bad, relatively speaking. We didn’t finish around the basket.”

LATE EJECTIONS

“I’m still befuddled about the whole thing, to be honest. I will talk to our coordinator of officials on the way home tonight. We will watch it first. It’s a little hard for me to understand how that unfolded.”
