HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Dennis Tinnon led five Marshall players in double figures with 22 points and pulled down nine rebounds as the Thundering Herd beat Southern Mississippi 79-75 on Saturday.

DeAndre Kane had 17, Damier Pitts and Shaquille Johnson recorded 13, and Dago Pena added 10 for Marshall (18-12, 9-7 Conference USA). All five of Marshall's starters grabbed at least four rebounds to help the Thundering Herd win the battle of the boards 44-36.

The Golden Eagles trailed throughout the first half but clawed back to take a 62-61 lead with 4:50 left to play behind a Darnell Dodson 3-pointer.

The Thundering Herd, however, used a 12-3 run to regain the lead, 73-65, with 1:02 remaining. Marshall made eight free throws while Southern Mississippi (24-7, 11-5) connected on just 3 of 6 free throw attempts and went 0 of 4 from the field during the run.

Jonathan Mills led Southern Mississippi with 17.
