Herd men’s hoops season ranked 11th in preseason coaches’ poll, season preview

Head Coach Dan D’Antoni’s team may have lost leading scorers Jon Elmore and C.J. Burks to professional basketball, but with the returns and the new faces of Marshall University basketball, the goals remain the same for the 2019-2020 basketball season.

“We always try to win the NCAA tournament,” D’Antoni said. “It is like having a dream and you almost win the lottery, why not dream that you win the whole thing?”

Even though Marshall did not make it to the NCAA Tournament last season, the team still ended the 2018-2019 season on a high note by winning the College Insider Tournament to get another banner hung from the rafters.
