Tinnon was blotted out, held to two offensive rebounds and 0-of-4 shooting - and that included a two-miss sequence in the final minute.
It was a sequence that seemed to sum up the Herd's night.
"We missed baskets point-blank," Herrion said. "We missed open 3s. Our shot selection wasn't atrocious or bad, relatively speaking. Tinnon goes 0 for 4 - doesn't happen, hasn't happened since he's been here. We didn't finish around the basket.
"Second half, we went inside, couldn't finish around the basket, didn't hit free throws to help compensate for that."
Marshall (5-4) was 12 of 22 from the line, continuing struggles there. The Herd was outrebounded 43-35, 15-10 on the offensive glass. Scarver led with 17 points and Elijah Pittman 16, both hitting four 3-pointers. Kane had 13 points and seven assists, but also had five turnovers. Pittman was 6 of 9 from the floor, but the rest of the Herd's forwards combined to go 2 for 11.
And Robert Goff didn't even get a shot in his 20 minutes, unless you count his flagrant foul with 1:37 left. He was ejected in a mini-melee that saw WVU lose four players for leaving the bench.
Herrion said he couldn't comment on the incident.
"I'm still a little befuddled on the whole thing, to be honest with you," Herrion said. "I'll talk to our coordinator of officials on the ride home tonight, watch it first. It's still a little hard to understand how that unfolded."
