Boys Basketball: University 67, Marshall 64
University got a team-high 21 points from David Medoff, but it was a shot from sophomore Jack Gale with 22 seconds remaining that broke a 64-64 tie to give the Red Devils (1-0) their first win of the season.
Marshall (0-2) was paced by a game-high 23 points from Mizell Parker and also got a solid contribution from John Sears, who scored 21 points.
University overcame a poor shooting night, connecting on just 6-of-19 free throw attempts and shooting 11-for-41 from three-point range.
The win is a welcome result for University, but the Red Devils could run into some trouble in the rest of the non-league season due to several key injuries.
Senior Max Savage is still recovering from a broken ankle last season and has been ruled out for the rest of the year, junior forward Will Carroll is out indefinitely with a knee injury and junior guard Harold Getz is out for three weeks with a severe ankle sprain.
