WOAY – Marshall softball is headed to the NCAA Tournament, receiving an at-large bid to the Lexington Regional on Sunday night.
The Thundering Herd will play Illinois in their opening game on Friday at noon, in a game that will be televised to a national audience. Host Kentucky and DePaul will play the second opening-round game.
Marshall entered the Conference USA Tournament as the top seed, after going 20-4 in league play during the regular season. The Herd won their opening game in Hattiesburg, Mississippi over Western Kentucky, but lost twice last Friday to Florida International & Louisiana Tech.
Friday’s game with Illinois will be their only game that day. Regional games continue on Saturday.
