HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Aleksa Nikolic lead six players into double-figure scoring as Marshall roared back from a halftime deficit to beat North Texas, 80-73 on Saturday night.

T.J. Taylor's 3-pointer with 6:28 left gave North Texas a brief, 64-63 lead, but the Thundering Herd reeled off a 10-2 run, including back-to-back 3-pointers by JP Kambola and Nikolic, to take a 73-66 advantage and closed the game out from the free-throw line.

Kambola, who grabbed 12 rebounds, and Jay Johnson each scored 14 points for Marshall (8-16, 4-7 Conference USA). Justin Edmonds added 13 points and Ryan Taylor scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Marshall, which trailed 38-35 at the half, shot 47.5 percent from the field (29 of 61) and was 9 of 25 from distance and 13 of 26 from the line.

Jordan Williams scored 23 points to lead North Texas (9-13, 3-7). Colin Voss contributed 17 and DeAndre Harris added 11.
