Enjoying a nice advantage in rebounding, Marshall handed Willmar its second loss of the season on Tuesday from Marshall.

The Cardinals were on 36-29 margin on the boards, including 15-6 gap on the offensive glass.

We matched intensity and physicality, but didn’t get the loose balls and defensive rebounds you need to beat a quality team,” Willmar head coach Dustin Carlson said. “They are strong and determined in everything they do, so to beat a team like that we have to be just as determined. It didn’t help that we didn’t hit any shots from the outside either.”
