On his way

Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall comes up with inventive ways to motivate. On Tuesday, he went grade school and candy canes on the Shockers in their final timeout.

“I talked about that in the last huddle — Do you believe in Santa Claus,” Marshall said. “I think those guys believe in Santa Claus. They better. Santa Claus came a little early to the Island today for us.”

You know these names

The Diamond Head Classic record book is full of familiar names and faces. The tournament started in 2009.

▪  College of Charleston’s Andrew Goudelock holds the record for shots attempted in a game (12 of 29) against Hawaii in 2009. He attempted a tournament-record 56, making 24. Anybody who saw him shoot at Koch Arena during the 2011 NIT is not surprised.

▪  In another link to the 2011 NIT, Washington State’s Klay Thompson made 13 three-pointers, a tournament record, in 25 attempts in 2010. He made a percentage record 5 of 6 (83.3 percent) against Baylor. Kansas State’s Angel Rodriguez equaled that mark in 2011 against Southern Illinois.

▪  Kansas State’s Rodney McGruder made 10 of 11 shots in the 2011 title game, a tournament-best percentage of 90.9. The Wildcats defeated Long Bech State 77-60 and McGruder earned MVP honors.

Tuesday’s games

Ohio 99, DePaul 78 — The Bobcats shot 59.4 percent from the field and Javarez Willis scored 31 points to move into the fifth-place game. Willis made 7 of 14 three-pointers.

George Washington 53, Colorado 50 — George Washington’s Joe McDonald scored 16 points and the Colonials outscored Colorado by seven points at the foul line.

Kevin Larsen blocked a three-pointer by Colorado’s Askia Booker in the final seconds.

“We knew with 10 seconds to go we needed a three,” Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. “We’ve got to have the ball in his hands. He’s a senior. That’s the way it goes.”

Nebraska 50, Loyola Marymount 42 (OT) — Terran Petteway scored 17 points, seven in overtime, to put the Huskers in the fifth-place game against Ohio. Loyola Marymount’s Evan Payne scored seven points and missed all seven of his threes.
