It was a tight game, but the Herd finally pulled it off. Had me on the edge of my seat for the whole game. I think I've seen them play a little better than they did today, but it was surely a good win.

On to Sunday.

Both of their last 2 games have been nail biters! Hopefully they keep on playing hard!

It was a nice win for Marshall. I have no connection to Marshall but listened to it on the radio. One of the premier upsets of the tournament until UMBC came along. LOL

Anyway, should make for an interesting Sunday for West Virginia.

Yeah, that UMBC and Virginia game was crazy! Hard to believe they won by 20 points.

Here's a nice write-up on the Marshall-WVU match up tomorrow:

Quote:
"You will have to ask West Virginia about that. I'm not going to go just play at Morgantown, so after that ask West Virginia," D'Antoni said. "I think it should be played. One time their place, one time our place, one time a neutral place, whatever.

"We're a Division I school. You've got to treat us like one. I would love to play. I'll needle them a little bit. I see somebody I can needle, so I'm going to needle them a little bit. We are playing West Virginia University. I coach Marshall University where West Virginians play. We'll just leave it at that."

Marshall and West Virginia used to meet yearly. From 1977-2015 it was an annual event in the state. And beginning with the 1991-92 season, any homecourt advantage was taken out of the discussion as the teams met on a neutral floor in Charleston.

It's unfortunate that it's "all about the money". Taxpayers fund both of these schools and the yearly game is something many would like to see.

I'm rooting for Marshall for that very reason but truthfully, I'm not going to place any money on it.

I have never in my life seen anybody else so obsessed with the athletic budget at a school. Anywhere.

That being said, let's get back to the topic of Marshall Sports.

In the past year, I can think of two events that Marshall conducted that had to cost some money, but they did them anyway, because it was the right thing to do.

Just days ago, they opened the Henderson Center for a watch party for the NCAA tournament lineup announcement show.

Last fall the opened The Joan for a showing of the movie "We Are Marshall."

Both were free to attend.

There's a discussion going on today on Facebook about what is the most important game in Marshall's history. Today's game isn't in the running. Not even if the discussion is limited to basketball.

Well, I meant basketball since that is the event of the moment. Marshall has never won a game in the Big Dance before, so it would be interesting to know what they consider to be a bigger basketball game for them than this one (a chance to get to the Sweet 16). What do you think was a bigger game?

I don't know enough about the Cam Henderson years or the time Hal Greer played, so I feel unqualified to judge. The fact that they just won a game in the NCAA tournament is a bigger deal than winning a 2nd game. They already did something the program has never done before, so that stands on its own.
