Marshall 57, Red Hill 47
Salukis can't escape from early deficit
RIDGEPORT - The Red Hill Salukis were never able to recover from a slow start Tuesday evening, falling to the Marshall Lions 57-47 in Little Illini Conference action.

Behind 9-0 after four minutes, the Salukis finally scored when Dalton Murray hit a 3-pointer with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

After that, Red Hill was able to play with the Lions, basket-for-basket, but could never close the early gap.

"Yea, we couldn't. There were different times in the game, and more so in the second half, where we had a couple of key possessions, where we couldn't quite get what we wanted, or we turned it over," Red Hill coach Bryan Havill said. "In a game like that, when you're kind of knocking on the door, a bucket could make a really big difference. It can kind of tighten things up and make things interesting, and we could never quite get it to that point."

Murray's second 3-pointer of the first quarter pulled Red Hill to within four, 12-8.

Down 17-9 after one quarter, the Salukis pulled to within three, 17-14 on Murray's third 3-pointer and two free throws by Jake Allen.

Marshall scored all six of its second-half points in the final two minutes of the second quarter and led 23-16 at intermission.

Marshall's biggest lead of the game came at 33-18 with 4:52 left in the third quarter. Two free throws and a a basket by Steven Ramsaran and two free throws from Murray closed the gap to nine, 33-24 with 2:54 to play in the third period.

The Lions led by nine after three quarters and led by as many as 14 down the stretch. A Ryan Kolb basket with 3:16 to play pulled the Salukis to within eight with 3:16 left, but Red Hill could come no closer.

Tyler Tewell banked in a 3-pointer at the final buzzer to produced the 57-47 final.

The loss dropped Red Hill to 5-19 overall and 2-8 in the LIC. Three of the losses have come at the hands of Marshall.

"We talked about battling and competing. I think the last couple of games we've done that. I thought tonight was not different. I thought we played hard," Havill said. "We had a man down and I thought everybody who came in and played contributed in their own way."

The Salukis were playing without Tanner Stoltz, who was sick and not in uniform.

Murray, who had also been sick, paced the Salukis with 17 points. He was the only Red Hill player in double figures.

Ramsaran came off the bench to score eight points, seven in the second half. Kolb also scored eight points, all in the second half, to go along with six rebounds.

For Marshall, 15-9 overall, 6-3 in the LIC, Keegan Steele led the way with 18 points with 6-4 freshman Spencer Shaffner getting 13 points and seven rebounds.

Turnovers plagued both clubs with the Salukis turning it over 21 times, including seven times in the fourth quarter. The Lions turned the ball over 16 times.

In junior varsity action, Marshall was a 51-26 winner. Andrew Tabler and Dalton Thacker paced the JV Salukis with nine points each.

The Salukis host Oblong tonight before traveling to Louisville to take on North Clay on Thursday.
