MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- DeAndre Kane scored a career-high 40 points to lead Marshall to a 105-100 victory over Tulsa in triple overtime Thursday in the Conference USA tournament quarterfinals.
Kane made 15 of 32 shots for the sixth-seeded Thundering Herd (20-12) in the first triple-overtime game in the tournament's 17-year history. Marshall, which advanced to C-USA tournament semifinals for the first time, will play Southern Mississippi on Friday.
Dago Pena's 3-pointer with 2:20 left in the third overtime started an 11-3 Thundering Herd run. Dennis Tinnon had six points and Kane five in the final period.
Kane also scored seven points in the final 31 seconds of the second overtime after the third-seeded Golden Hurricane (17-14) went ahead 83-79. Kane, whose 15 made field goals were a tournament record, played 54 of the 55 minutes and surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career.
The 205 combined points were a tournament record and the game also marked the first time in tournament history that both teams scored at least 100 points.
Shaquille Johnson added 25 points for Marshall, including 14 of 18 free throws. The teams combined to make 68 of 101 free throws with Tulsa going 40 of 58 from the line, both tournament records.
Eric McClellan scored 25 points and Steven Idlet 20 for Tulsa. Idlet also was 14 of 18 from the line.
