The last meeting ended in an easy win for the Thundering Herd.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Thundering Herd may only have a record of 12-7, but their conference record is 5-1. They are currently tied for first in the C-USA.
The Thundering Herd are scoring the ball very well, as they average 80.7 points per game. Their leading scorer, Jon Elmore, will need to have a great game if Marshall is going to continue having success in conference play.
Despite their good offense, Marshall has a terrible defense. They allow an average of 80.6 points per game, which is 340th in the country. Their opponents are also shooting 47.1% against them from the field. The Thundering Herd may be 5-1 in the conference, but if they continue to play bad defensively it will catch up to them by the end of the season. Look for the Thundering Herd to focus on holding the Bulldogs under 45% shooting or hold the Bulldogs under 80 points.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
The Bulldogs have now lost two in a row and now sit in 8th place with a conference record of 3-4. A win over Marshall would move them back to .500 in the C-USA and would put them in contention for a first round bye in the Conference USA tournament.
The Bulldogs offense is only averaging 74.2 points per game this season. They are coming a terrible performance, only scoring 40 points in their last game. Since their leading scorer only averages 13.4 points per game, they will need several other players to step up and contribute if they are going to win this game.
The Bulldogs defense is actually playing decently this year. They allow 67.8 points per game, which is important because Marshall has a great scoring offense. The key for this defense is holding Marshall under their usual 80 points.
