Windom 42-30 = 72
Marshall 36-41 = 77
Marshall’s tight defense and hot outside shooting in the second half proved to be the difference Friday, as the Tigers rallied for a 77-72 victory over the Windom Eagles at Marshall.
Windom held a six-point halftime edge, thanks largely to a parade to the free throw line early in the game. Windom went 19-of-23 from the stripe for the game.
But in the second half, the Tigers clamped down on defense and bombed away from the outside. Marshall was 11-of-24 from three-point range in the game, doing much of that damage in the second half.
