Marshall 77, Kennesaw 74 (OT)

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Mark Patton scored a game-high 21 and
reserve guard Mark Dorris added 18, including the go-ahead basket
to start overtime, as Marshall topped Kennesaw State 77-74 at the
Jack In The Box Holiday Classic on Friday.

Patton and Dorris combined for the final 5 points in regulation
and first 5 in the extra period as the Thundering Herd (5-5) took
third place at the four-team tournament.

Marshall led by 10 points midway through the second half. But
the Herd found themselves trailing 65-60 after Kennesaw State (4-7)
went on a 23-10 run down the stretch.

Patton's foul shot with 21 seconds to go tied things however and
Dorris' layup started overtime and put Marshall up for good.

The Herd built its overtime lead to six, 72-66, on LaVar
Carter's short hook with 1:47 left and held off the Owls' final
charge, which ended with Golden Ingle's 3-pointer bounced off the
front of the rim at the buzzer.

Ingle scored 18 to lead Kennesaw.
