But the Bulldogs pushed the Friars back on their heels immediately out of the break with a 15-2 run in the first 5 minutes. During the run, Dunham knocked down two quick 3’s and hit a free throw after getting fouled on a successful layup.

Dunham finished 9 of 16 and 3 of 8 from deep, while Marshall was 10 of 17 from the field. Kameron Woods added 10 rebounds.
