HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (AP) Marlin Mason scored 18 and Anton Grady scored 15 of his 17 in the second half to help Cleveland State beat Marshall 68-59 on Friday night.

Trey Lewis added 14 points and seven assists for Cleveland State (3-3), which took a 33-22 lead into halftime despite foul trouble limiting Grady and Lewis - the team's top two scorers - to a combined 15 minutes in the first half.

JP Kambola hit a 3-pointer with 2:28 remaining, pulling Marshall within three, but Mason and Lewis each hit 3-pointers during an ensuing 9-1 run by the Vikings that made it 66-55 with 27 seconds left and sealed the win.

Ryan Taylor scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Kambola added 15 points for Marshall (3-3), which couldn't overcome its slow start, despite shooting 54.5 percent from the field in the second half.

The Thundering Herd was 7-of-24 shooting before halftime.
