Records: UT is 6-7, 2-2 in MAC; Marshall is 3-10, 0-4.
Last game: UT d. Ball State 77-67; Marshall d. West Virginia 59-55.
Outlook: Two months into the season and the Rockets are still looking for their first win on a hostile court. Toledo cannot afford to fall further behind the leaders in the MAC West Division, unbeaten Western Michigan and Bowling Green, who meet today. Toledo has held a significant lead in both of its MAC road losses this season, only to wilt down the stretch. UT head coach Stan Joplin has never won in Huntington, W.Va. We ve never played well at Marshall, Joplin said. This is an opportunity for us to do something that the program hasn t done since I ve been here. Marshall is coming off an emotionally charged win over in-state rival West Virginia. Keith Triplett leads Toledo with 15.7 ppg., while Marshall is led by freshman guard Joe Miles 13.5 ppg. UT center Allen Pinson, who missed Wednesday s MAC home win over Ball State after suffering a concussion late in the game at Buffalo on Sunday, might not be available again tonight.
