Marshall Women’s Basketball clinched a 99-90 win at the University of Louisiana at Monroe on Saturday, Feb. 24.

Marshall capped off a two week long road trip going 4-0 and improving their overall record to 21-6 and 15-1 in the Sun Belt Conference.

“I hated our first quarter,” head coach Kim Caldwell said following the win. “Happy to get the win, especially after being on the road for the past two weeks.”

Caldwell, who is now the most successful first year coach in team history, has 21 wins in her inaugural year leading the Herd.

Marshall beat ULM in rebounds 42-38, including out-rebounding them 13-11 on the offensive glass.

“Our offensive rebounds, especially in the second half, won us the game,” Caldwell said.

The first quarter was slow for Marshall, scoring only 17 compared to 32 points by ULM. The Herd shot 33% in the first compared to the Warhawks’ 59%.

Early in the second quarter, ULM led by as many as 17, but Marshall came back, outscoring their opponent 30-17 in the second quarter to cut that deficit to just two going into halftime.

Following halftime, Marshall jumped out of the gates, outscoring ULM 32-18 in the third quarter to lead by 12 going into the fourth.

The fourth quarter saw Marshall falter, with ULM outscoring Marshall 23-20, but the Herd held on to win by nine points. 

In the game, Marshall made 48.6% of their shots, going 36-for-74 from the field. Thirteen of the made shots were from the three-point line.

The Herd had four players score in double digits; three had at least 20 for Marshall.

A frontrunner for conference player of the year, Abby Beeman had 25 points on 10-for-17 shooting. Aislynn Hayes had a double-double, scoring 21 points on 8-for-19 shooting and pulling in 10 rebounds in 28 minutes of action. She also made a team high of four three-pointers. Senior Breanna Campbell had 20 points on 6-for-8 shooting. Seven of her points came from the free-throw line. Sydni Scott scored 12 points on 5-for-10 shooting.

Both teams combined for 50 fouls during the game. The Herd fouled 28 times compared to ULM’s 22 fouls. 

ULM’s Daisha Bradford led all scorers with 29 points. Fifteen of her points came from the first quarter.
