Thundering Herd Madness
Marshall University mens basketball program is set for Thundering Herd Madness Friday at 8 p.m. in the Cam Henderson Center.
Head Coach Tom Herrion and the Herd team will be introduced to the fans through a variety of events. Gates open at 7 p.m. and player introductions will begin at 8 p.m. followed by a two-ball competition, slam-dunk contest and an inter-squad scrimmage. There will be giveaways and post event autographs.
Robert Goff, a senior center, for the Herd will be participating in the dunk contest.
Its a secret, Goff said, in an interview with The Parthenon during Marshall Media Day Thursday, about what he has in store for the contest.
The Thundering Herd basketball team went 21-14 last season and played in the National Invitation Tournamnet.
In Herrions two seasons with the Herd the tam has won a minimal of 20 games each season.
Tickets are $5 and seating is general admission. Students are admitted free with a valid Marshall ID.
Prior to the event the Thundering Herd volleyball team will play the Rice Owls with a first serve at 5:30 p.m. in the Cam Henderson Center. The Herd are ranked No. 3 in the Conference USA while the Owls boast a No. 2 record.
Volleyball Head coach Mitch Jacobs and the Herd own an undefeated record at home on the season and will look to keep that alive against the Owls.
