South Dakota State shoots past Marshall

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — South Dakota State’s Chad White hit a 3-pointer in the final seconds of the game to defeat Marshall 78-77 Saturday at the Mack Sports Complex.

The Thundering Herd (2-2) held a 77-72 lead with 20.1 seconds to play after a D.D. Scarver 3-pointer. Brayden Carlson then hit a 3 to make it a two-point game, 77-75 with 11.9 remaining.

The Herd’s Chris Martin missed the front end of a one-and-one opportunity at the free throw line, which gave SDSU the ball with 10 seconds to play.

White’s three-point shot came unguarded and left just 2.1 seconds remaining. DeAndre Kane’s half-court heave was off-target.

The game saw 10 ties and 10 lead changes.

Marshall will play its third game in three days at 3 p.m. today, playing the host school, Hofstra, in the final game of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.

“We didn’t get the job done defensively and let two late 3s beat us,” said head coach Tom Herrion. “The 3-point shot beat us the entire day. Our 3-point defense hurt us mightily today.”

The Jackrabbits (2-2) made 11-of-21 three-point attempts, good for 52.4 percent. The Herd hit 8-of-23 for 34.8 percent.

“Their (SDSU) spacing is very good,” Herrion said. “They have a good skill level and shoot the ball really well. We are going to play teams that are very similar in that regard.”

Marshall lost despite outrebounding SDSU 42-29.

Leading the rebounding effort for the Herd was junior forward Elijah Pittman with 14 boards, seven offensive, to go with 16 points for his first double-double of the season.

Kane scored a team-high 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting including 2-of-5 from 3-point range. As the team’s point guard, he recorded eight assists to just three turnovers while playing 39 minutes.

Juniors Dennis Tinnon and Scarver also scored in double figures with 10 points each. Tinnon was 4-of-7 from the field and added nine rebounds. Scarver was 4-of-9 from the field including 2-of-6 from 3-point range.

Carlson led the Jackrabbits with 23 points on 5-of-7 shooting from 3-point range. Preseason All-American candidate Nate Wolters scored 22 points and had 10 assists.
