Marshall Men’s Basketball took down the Akron Zips 68-57 Wednesday night on the back of a very strong defense for their sixth-straight win this season. The Herd improves to an all-time record of 14-16 against Akron.
The Thundering Herd dominated from start to finish, going out to a 7-0 lead and taking a 12-point advantage into the halftime break. The Zips closed the gap to single digits a couple times in the second half, but each time Coach Dan D’Antoni adjusted the game plan to create a more comfortable lead.
The Herd is now 6-1 on the season and next host the Ohio Bobcats on Saturday, December 3 before heading to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to take on the Duquesne Dukes on December 8.
