HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Dennis Tinnon scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as Marshall pulled away in the second half to beat District of Columbia 80-58 Friday in the 2K Sports Classic.

Trailing 50-48 with 13:27 remaining in the second half, two Chris Martin jump shots and dunks by Elijah Pittman and Tinnon helped spark Marshall (2-1) on a 32-8 run to close out the game.

After bettering Marshall in the first half to shoot 46.7 percent (14 of 30), District of Columbia (1-2) shot just 25 percent (7 of 28) in the second half to blow a 37-36 halftime lead.

DeAndre Kane added 16 points, nine assists and five rebounds for the Thundering Herd.

Elijah Pittman recorded 14 points while not missing a single shot, hitting 5 for 5 from the field, including a 3-pointer, and 3 for 3 from the line.

Quasim Jones led the Firebirds with 12 points.
