HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Ryan Taylor scored 25 points to lead six Marshall players in double figures as they dominated NAIA Alice Lloyd 121-57 Tuesday night.
Marshall (5-6) shot a blistering 64.7 percent from the field and drained 15 of 26 from long range. Alice Lloyd (6-6) finished just 26.6 from the field and hit 7 of 34 from 3-point range.
Marshall ripped off a 20-5 run to open a 40-19 first-half lead. The Thundering Herd extended the lead to 54-30 at halftime in a game that was never close.
Marshall controlled the paint, outscoring Alice Lloyd 56-20 and grabbing a 54-32 rebound advantage.
Tyler Rogers paced Alice Lloyd, scoring 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
