A solid second half performance made all the difference for Tulsa as it romped to a 69-52 win Saturday afternoon over Marshall in Huntington, W.V. It was the first road win of the season for the Golden Hurricane (8-10 overall, 3-1 in Conference USA).

Tulsa trailed 25-20 at halftime, then it would chisel away at the deficit until taking the lead for good on a 3-pointer from James Woodard with 9:52 left in the game. That brought the score to 47-45.

A lay-up inside the pain from Rashad Ray made the score 59-48 with 5:19 left. A dunk by De’Andre Wright with 20 seconds remaining would bring the game to its final score.

Tulsa shot 41 percent (24-of-58) for the game, hit 54 percent (7-of-13) from 3-point range and 78 percent (14-of-18) from the free throw line.

Marshall (6-13, 0-4) finished with 33 percent (19-of-58) from the floor, made just 25 percent (4-of-16) in 3s and sank 67 percent (10-of-15) from the foul stripe.

TU had previously incurred a 90-86 loss in overtime two nights earlier at Charlotte. The Golden Hurricane will return home to meet Middle Tennessee at 8 p.m. Thursday.
