HUNTINGTON, WV - The start of a Herd hoops homestand began with a thud on Thursday night as Marshall lost to Charlotte by a final of 77-75. A half court three pointer by Taevion Kinsey made it much closer than it was as Charlotte led by close to double digits the entire second half. Marshall did cut it to a 5 point game but Charlotte answered with a three right after that to make it an 8 point game shortly after.
