Huntington, WV (Sports Network) - D.D. Scarver scored 17 points to lead the Marshall Thundering Herd to a 70-67 victory over the Morehead State Eagles in a non-league clash at the Cam Henderson Center.

For the Thundering Herd (4-3), Nigel Spikes and DeAndre Kane each finished with 13 points and a combined 17 rebounds, while Dennis Tinnon posted a double-double with 12 points and 16 boards. Kane, who shot just 5-of-20 from the floor, missed all five of his three-point tries and was 3-of-9 at the charity stripe, also handed out seven assists.

Jarrett Stokes led the Eagles (4-3) with 14 points before fouling out, while Milton Chavis chipped in with 11 points.

Morehead State shot just 31.3 percent from the floor and only 2-of-8 from three-point range in the first half. Marshall made only 26.5 percent of its field goals and missed all 11 of its three-point tries, but a 6-1 advantage at the free-throw line allowed the Herd to take a slim 24-23 lead into the break.

In the second half, the teams improved their shooting, with the Eagles connecting on 41 percent from the field and 5-of-8 of their three-point attempts. The Thundering Herd converted 42.3 percent and outscored the Eagles 22-7 at the free-throw line.

Though Marshall led throughout most of the second half, a late three by Morehead State cut the lead to just three, while a game-tying three-point try at the buzzer missed the mark.
