Women’s basketball starts season 2-0 with win over Norfolk State

Three-point shooting success lifts Marshall over the Spartans of Norfolk State to give the Herd its second win on the season.

Marshall University women’s basketball team defeated Norfolk State by a score of 75-69 Saturday in the Cam Henderson Center. Marshall shot 42.3% from the three-point line going 11-26. Freshman Savannah Wheeler led the Herd in points with 19 while shooting 5-7 from the three-point line.

“We started pretty good and we made a lot of shots early,” Head Coach Tony Kemper said. “We were pretty good defensively too; we knew they were going to be a lot of trouble in transition, and I think we handled that pretty well in the first half.
