The Alice Lloyd Eagles traveled to Huntington, West Virginia on Tuesday, December 17th, to square off against the Marshall University Thundering Herd. The game went as expected as the NCAA Division I program took an easy 121-57 victory.
The Eagles actually kept it close for the first three and a half minutes, only trailing 9-7. With thirteen minutes to go in the opening half, Marshall led the Eagles 19-14. From that point on, the Herd showed their superior talent by going on an 18-2 run. ALC (6-6, 1-1 KIAC) went into intermission down 54-30.
In the second half, the lead only ballooned for the home team. There was not a lot that the visitors could do as Marshall (5-6) outscored the Eagles in the second stanza, 67-27.
Tyler Rogers paced the Eagles with 13 points while Isaac Wilson and Cody Stumbo had 9.
Marshall’s Ryan Taylor scored 25 points.
If there was one positive to take away from this game for Alice Lloyd, it would be in the turnover department. The Eagles faced a tenacious full-court press for nearly the entire game, but only recorded 10 turnovers.
The Eagles will rest over Christmas break and will return to action on January 4th for a meeting with Cincinnati Christian in Pippa Passes. Game time is set for 4 PM.
