Jon Elmore Shows off Amazing Range with 3-Point Barrage in Win vs. Wichita St.

The NCAA tournament is an opportunity for lesser-known players to showcase their abilities on the big stage, and Marshall's Jon Elmore certainly took advantage.

The guard looked like Stephen Curry in Friday's game, leading the No. 13-seeded Thundering Herd to an 81-75 upset win over No. 4 Wichita State.

Elmore finished with 27 points in the victory, shooting 4-of-8 from three-point range with a few of the looks coming from well beyond the arc. In one second-half shot, he was almost on his team's bench.

The junior has produced at this level all year long with an average of 22.8 points per game, but he will get at least one more chance to show what he can do in the spotlight with Marshall advancing to the second round.

Either West Virginia or Murray State awaits the Thundering Herd in Round 2.
