HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Elijah Pittman led four starters in double figures with 20 points and Nigel Spikes scored 10 of his 11 points in the second half of Marshall's 75-71 win over Central Florida on Saturday.

D.D. Scarver, the only Conference USA player to make at least one 3-pointer in every game, added 16 points for Marshall (10-12, 3-4) and Dennis Tinnon had 13. DeAndre Kane dished out 12 assists for Marshall, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

Spikes, who had just one point in the first half, broke a 55-all tie with four straight free throws with just over 6 minutes remaining. The center sandwiched two layups around two Scarver free throws to put Marshall up for good, 68-64, with 1:16 left to play.

Keith Clanton had 24 points and nine rebounds for UCF (15-6, 5-2) but had six of the Knights' 12 turnovers. UCF had its four-game winning streak snapped.
