Each senior addressed the banquet crowd about their love of Marshall, their teammates, their coaches, and the support staff that helped make their experience with the Thundering Herd one they will never forget.

Hamilton took home the team's most outstanding player award, along with the steals, assists, and "thoroughbred" awards. The "thoroughbred" award is given to the player who logs the most minutes on the year.
