CIT college basketball action pits the Hampton Pirates against the Marshall Thundering Herd.
The Hampton Pirates were solid at both ends of the floor in downing the New Jersey Tech Highlanders 82-70 in the CIT quarterfinals.
Jermaine Marrow led the big offense of the Pirates with 22 points, five boards and four assists with Greg Heckstall netting 19 points and hauling in ten rebounds.
Kalin Fisher gave Hampton 16 points and four boards while Trevond Barnes and Akim Mitchell netted 13 and ten points and hauled in a combined 23 rebounds.
The Marshall Thundering Herd punched their ticket to the CIT semifinals with an 83-66 rout of the Presbyterian Blue Hose as a 6.5 point home favorite.
CJ Burks was the top gun for the Thundering Herd with a contest high 20 points, five boards and eight helpers while Jon Elmore added 16 points, seven rebounds and five steals.
Rondale Watson gave Marshall 12 points and Darius George netted ten points and six boards with Jannson Williams and Mikel Byers tossing in seven points each and combining for eleven rebounds.
Hampton Pirates are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall and are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
Marshall Thundering Herd are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games.
I have to think the edge belongs to the Thundering Herd at home although I think the longer lay off is a cause for concern…
