    EL PASO, Texas -- Aaron Bacote scored 25 points and sixth-seeded Old Dominion pulled away in the second half to defeat 14th-seeded Marshall 73-58 on Wednesday in the second round of the Conference USA tournament.

    The Monarchs (16-16) advanced to play third-seeded Middle Tennessee in a Thursday quarterfinal.

    Bacote, who also had eight rebounds, finished three points shy of his career high. He made 13 of 18 free throws with the Monarchs sinking 23 of 32 from the line. Dimitri Batten added 13 points and seven boards for ODU, which outrebounded Marshall 39-26.

    Kareem Canty scored 17 points for Marshall (11-22), but was scoreless in the first half and made only 1 of 8 3-point attempts. Shawn Smith added 15 points and 11 rebounds.

    Leading by two at halftime, ODU never trailed in the second half. The Monarchs outscored the Thundering Herd 19-8 over a 6-minute stretch to lead 62-46 with 3:57 left.
