Aundra Williams has been named MU Student-Athlete of the Week for his game-winning hoop against Houston to secure a 63-62 Thundering Herd victory Tuesday night.

The opportunistic Williams scored his only points of the game with 11 seconds to go to put Marshall up one. After DeAndre Kane's shot was blocked, "Big Dre" Williams corralled the loose ball and banked it in over the outstretched Cougar defense.

The win improved Marshall to 15-7 overall and 3-4 in C-USA play. The Herd continues its road trip at Southern Miss on Saturday. The two teams met earlier this season in Huntington, with MU coming out victorious, 95-65.
