Marshall earns home opener win over Hofstra

November 13, 2018

Marshall's Jon Elmore (33) skirts past Hofstra's Justin Wright-Foreman (3) as the Marshall University men's basketball team plays against Hofstra University on Sunday at the Cam Henderson Center.

A season home opener and a large crowd sparked Marshall University’s men’s basketball team to a 76-72 win over Hofstra University on Sunday.

“That’s what I remember,” head coach Dan D’Antoni said about the fan support, harking back to his playing days at Marshall (1966-69).

Marshall unveiled banners in a pre-game ceremony dedicated to last season’s Conference USA championship and NCAA Tournament second round appearance. The new banners hang on the east wall of the arena and will be joined by new versions of the old banners that were removed because they blocked the spectators’ view of the new overhead videoboard.
