HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Ryan Taylor scored the game-winning points on a three-point play with 10 seconds to go as Marshall rallied to beat East Carolina 64-61 Sunday.

Kareem Canty made 3-pointer and Shawn Smith a layup to lead up to Taylor's go-ahead play which made it 62-61. Canty scored two more on a pair throws after a missed 3-pointer by East Carolina's Akeem Richmond.

    I would argue we live in one of the best places to cover football. At the high school level our teams always win state championships, then you get to see many of those players excel in college.
