MARSHALL — The scoreboard was still illuminated, the stands were empty and even the school janitors may have left the building.

Travis Carroll’s Marshall Tigers had just finished eliminating Dassel-Cokato from a Class 3A Boys Basketball Section 2 Tournament quarterfinal game by a convincing 68-31 margin, but Carroll is usually one of the last ones to leave the building, along with his family and friends, of course.

Carroll’s father, Harvey, and mother, Sharon, along with two of their family friends sit in the same corner of the gym during every home game.
