Per a press release from the athletic department, Marshall University basketball player DeAndre Kane will be out indefinitely after suffering a right hand injury. Initial reports indicate the injury could sideline the talented point guard for six to eight weeks.
An all Conference USA first team preseason selection, Kane leads the Thundering Herd in minutes (38.2), points (15), and assist (8.5) per game. Potential replacements include backup guards Chris Martin, DeVince Boykins, and Tamron Manning. It is also possible that Kelvin Amayo, a transfer from Towson that will be eligible next semester, could pick up Kane’s minutes.
