Prep Wrapup: University holds off Marshall for season-opening win

Prep Wrapup is our new feature where we will hopefully provide a broad overview of the previous day’s action. Coaches, to contribute to the Prep Wrapup, please send scores and details the night of the game/event to or call our scores line at (415) 251-0918.

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.

    Good job Marshall. Hang in there, you’re going to be a force in the league. My heart goes out to M. Savage. It’s his senior year and he is out for the season. That’s tough. Stay strong Max.

    Marshall has always been a team to struggle with barely filling a roster but finds away to hang with the best you have to give created to Coach Miles. Stay focus this season Sears and good luck to those two outstanding sophomores Smith and Parker.

      Well said. I hope they can solve their roster filling issues. Marshall has a great coach and I hope they can turn things around.
