Marshall Basketball: Back to the semifinals; Herd will meet La. Tech

Marshall feels it could have beaten Louisiana Tech earlier in the season on the road, but fell 94-90.

They get another chance Friday night.

This time in Birmingham.

For a second straight year, Dan D'Antoni's Herd will be in the semifinals of the Conference USA Tournament.

Marshall will go against the Bulldogs Friday afternoon.

A win puts the Herd in the finals against the UTEP-Middle Tennessee winner.

Marshall earned its way there with a 64-63 win over Old Dominion on Thursday night in the Conference USA quarterfinals.

Stevie Browning led the way with 24. Joe Elmore added 15 for the Herd.
