    The Marshall University women's basketball team look for their third win in conference play Saturday afternoon against Eastern Michigan.

    The Herd (6-15, 2-8 MAC) are coming off a road loss at Ohio, 77-67, Thursday night. Poor shooting did MU in, as Marshall converted on only 25 of their 65 shots from the floor. There were many bright spots in the loss, including senior Au'Yana Ferguson. The senior forward from Louisville, Kentucky, notched her fourth double-double of the year (12 points, 11 rebounds), and enters Saturday's game needing 12 rebounds to crack the top 10 on the all-time rebounding list. Three other Herd players are hoping to build on double-digit performances against the Bobcats this weekend.

    Eastern Michigan (12-9, 5-5) brings Preseason First Team All-MAC member Stephanie Smiley and company to Huntington for their only regular season matchup with Marshall. Smiley averages 12.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for the Eagles. Abby Wiseman and Shani Charles have also posted good seasons thus far, averaging 12.6 and 11.5 points per game, respectively.

    Tip time for tomorrow's game is set for 1 p.m. Locally, the game can be heard live on WMUL-88.1 FM, or worldwide on www.marshall.edu/wmul.
