The Thundering Herd (isn't that just the BEST team nickname you've ever
Marshall Coach Royce Chadwick was "thrilled" that fans turned out in such numbers to see two women's teams battle on the hardwood. In the Herald-Dispatch, Coach Chadwick had this to say:
"I'm thrilled. Honestly, this is the first time in my tenure here that the game stood by itself," he said. "There was no half-court shot to win a car. There wasn't a guest coach. They came to watch the teams play."What's this about a car!!!?? They give cars away at Marshall games? Whoa!!! And here the BasketCases thought getting a free t-shirt or a big foam finger was pretty cool . . . little did we know!
The Terps return home to Comcast this Saturday for a 7:00 PM game against the Gauchos from the University of California-Santa Barbara.
