WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — William & Mary outgunned Marshall 114-104 in a game that featured 30 3-pointers on Wednesday night.

Connor Burchfield scored 30 points on 10-of-12 shooting from 3 for the Tribe (4-2), which sank 18-of-28 overall.

Jon Elmore finished one assist shy of a triple-double for Marshall (4-3), producing 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. He was 13-of-14 from the free-throw line.

William & Mary trailed 77-69 before Burchfield hit three consecutive 3s to regain the lead for good.

“Winning is a razor’s edge,” Herd coach Dan D’Antoni said. “You cannot take your eye off this team and relax, because they can shoot the ball. We gave Burchfield three 3-pointers. Our defenders have to learn to get on players.”
