    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Markel Humphrey hit a pair of free throws with five seconds left in overtime and scored a career-high 22 points to lead Marshall to an 82-80 comeback victory over UNC-Greensboro on Saturday.

    Travis Aikens added 19 points, including 11 in the overtime period, while Mark Dorris scored 14 points for Marshall.

    UNC-Greensboros Kyle Hines had a double-double with a career-high 38 points and 12 rebounds. Mikko Koivisto scored 12 points and Ricky Hickman added 11 for the Spartans.

    Aikens scored seven of Marshall's first eight points in overtime to give the Thundering Herd a 76-71 lead with 3:18 left.

    While Aikens did most of the damage, Humphrey sealed the victory.

    Off an inbounds pass, Humphrey took the ball to the basket and was fouled by Matt Akinosho. Humphrey hit both free throws and a 3-pointer by Hickman fell short as time expired.
