HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) Darius Thompson collected Western Kentucky's first triple-double in nine years, and the Hilltoppers scored a program record with their 112-87 victory over Marshall on Saturday night.

Thompson had career highs in all three categories: 33 points on 11-of-16 shooting, including six 3-pointers; 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. It was the first triple-double at Western Kentucky since Orlando Mendez-Valdez had one against Troy on Jan. 1, 2009.

Western Kentucky (11-5, 3-0 Conference USA), which has won four straight, put up its previous-best of 100 points in its 20-point win against Nicholls on Nov. 19.
