Marshall has a chance to jump up to perhaps the three seed in the tournament with wins in their final two games, and won't be an easy out, as non-conference wins over Cincinnati and Iona show the Thundering Herd are a formidable foe for anyone.
The 2012 Conference USA Basketball Championship will be played March 6-10 in Memphis at the FedEx Forum, the eight time overall the city of Memphis has hosted the tournament.
