Recap: Morehead State vs. Marshall

Morehead, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Brent Arrington and Bakari Turner both scored 24 points as the Morehead State Eagles took down the Marshall Thundering Herd in overtime, 102-94, in a non-conference bout at Johnson Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Eagles (3-1) were Angelo Warner and Luka Pajkovic with 15 and 13 points, respectively, while Chad Posthumus registered a double-double with 14 points and a game-high 15 rebounds in the victory.

Elijah Pittman led all scorers with 31 points, shooting just 3-of-11 behind the 3-point line, but 10-of-11 at the charity stripe for the Herd (2-1). Kareem Canty accounted for 19 points and nine assists, but he also turned the ball over nine times. Ryan Taylor and Shawn Smith contributed 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Shooting only 39.1 percent from the floor, including 1-of-6 beyond the arc, Morehead State fell behind by a 48-33 margin at the break. The Herd took advantage of 27 trips to the free-throw line through the first 20 minutes of play, knocking down all but six opportunities.

In the second half Marshall erupted for 60.9 percent accuracy from the field, but only 6-of-12 at the charity stripe, opening the door for the hosts to mount a successful comeback bid. Trailing by six with under a minute remaining in regulation, the Eagles chipped away and eventually tied the meeting at 86-86 on a pair of free throws by Posthumus with 14 seconds to play.

In the extra session Morehead State turned in a perfect 14-of-14 performance at the line in order to take the win.

The Eagles forced 26 turnovers, which they traded in for 32 points, but perhaps even more important was all the time the squad spent at the free-throw line where they finished up 40-of-65, compared to 29-of-43 for the visitors.
