And you can throw in Taylor's dead-ball technical foul with 2:44 left, which resulted in two Juwan Staten free throws followed by a Staten layup. With WVU ahead 68-63, the Herd got desperate on offense.
"When we went down five, I didn't get into the lane and do what I do," Canty said. "We started moving too fast as a group, we got frustrated."
Those final minutes were a testament to the Herd's inexperience, which can best be measured with one stunning statistic: Of the nine scholarship players available and used Saturday, none scored in last year's Capital Classic. Most were not yet on the roster, of course.
Who scored Marshall's 59 points last December: D.D. Scarver 17 (left program), Pittman 16 (suspended), DeAndre Kane 13 (at Iowa State), Nigel Spikes 7 (senior), Dennis Tinnon 4 (senior) and Jamir Hanner 2 (left program).
"Our youth, it shows at the wrong times," Herrion said.
Taylor, who injured his knee in practice 10 days ago and was "very questionable" heading into Saturday, fouled out with the technical.
"Hard to do in this game," Herrion said. "Hard not to get to the bonus in the first half in this game."
