HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Jon Elmore drained a career-high nine 3-pointers and finished with 38 points as Marshall raced past Charlotte 103-75 Saturday night, closing out its home slate at the Cam Henderson Center and rebounding from a loss to Old Dominion that ended a five-game win streak.

Burks added 16 points with five assists for the Herd, Darius George scored 13 and Ajdin Penava 10 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three blocks before fouling out. Marshall shot 54 percent (39 of 72) and made 16 from distance in 38 attempts.
