Marshall junior guard Taevion Kinsey poured in 21 points in the first half and the Herd had to head off a late UTEP rally with clutch free throws to win it 86-78 win over the Miners.

Andrew Taylor added 15 points and Mikel Beyers 14 as the Herd improves to 17-14 on the season.

Marshall was seemingly in command until UTEP went on a 7-0 run to close to within 77-74 but they could get no closer than 3 down the stretch.
