First reported by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, former Marshall University basketball player DeAndre Kane is transferring to Iowa State. As a graduate student Kane will be eligible immediately with one year of eligibility remaining.
A two time All Conference USA second team selection, Kane averaged 34.1 minutes, 15.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 4.5 assist per game in three years with the Thundering Herd. This season Kane was Marshall's primary ball handler, averaging 37.1 minutes, 15.1 points, 7 assist, and 4.4 rebounds per game.
Earlier this month it was reported that Kane was headed to his hometown Pittsburgh Panthers but, those reports proved premature. Kane joins an Iowa State program that also added Northern Illinois transfer Abdel Nader in this years recruiting class.
Marshall announced Kane’s departure in April, he is one of four players, Chris Martin, D.D. Scarver and Jamir Hanner, to leave the basketball program with eligibility remaining this offseason.
