The stat sheet from the Capital Classic dutifully notes that Dennis Tinnon had 10 rebounds.
Today's Conference USA standings will duly note that Marshall has sole possession of first place for the first time ever. With Memphis losing to Central Florida on Wednesday, the Herd (13-5 overall) stands alone at 4-0 in C-USA.
But after the Thundering Herd absorbed a 76-62 beak-busting from West Virginia, the aforementioned facts will impress nobody. Neither Tinnon, the Herd's rebounding machine, or coach Tom Herrion will have their feelings hurt.
Tinnon certainly won't have his feelings hurt, not after he went all the way to the 4:55 mark in the second half without an offensive rebound. By then, the Mountaineers owned a double-digit lead, which it didn't come close to letting go.
All told, the Herd was outscored 48-32 in the second half, coming out of a halftime tied at 30. The Herd has suffered one similarly disastrous second half, New Year's Day at home against Akron.
The parallels are eerie. In the earlier game, the teams were tied at 27, and the Zips outscored the Herd 40-24 to take a 67-51 win - yes, a 16-point victory.
Put those second halves together, and Herrion can show his team one whale of a horror movie. Or he can put together a montage of his team getting outworked on the boards, where it suffered its first deficit in 19 games.
"Mightily," Herrion said in describing it. "I thought they were absolutely quicker, stronger, faster, more aggressive to the ball. We did a poor job - we didn't find a body to block out, we reached, we tipped, we weren't aggressive enough."
The Herd was outrebounded 37-27, and outdone on the offensive glass 11-9. And that's a bit misleading - the Herd picked up five such boards in the final 7:33.
Tinnon was eaten up down low, and he gave credit to his conquerors.
"They knew what their goal was, as far as stopping me on the glass, and they did a good job with that," Tinnon said. "Bodies were coming from everywhere, left, right, behind me, in front of me. They're knew what they were supposed to do."
But even in the Akron disaster, the Herd wasn't outrebounded. That hasn't happened since the 2011 C-USA tournament quarterfinals against Texas-El Paso - 19 games ago.
It didn't seem to matter that the Mountaineers were playing without big Deniz Kilicli, who sat out with an ankle injury. The way WVU players were hitting the glass and diving for loose balls, they all could have been 3-foot-6.
When the Herd did get good position for a rebound, it still squandered possession. Take the series when the Herd finally got its first offensive rebound of the game. And its second - Nigel Spikes and DeAndre Kane both missed putbacks.
