Marshall Basketball: Edmonds to be Redshirted, Kambola Held Out

Speaking with reporters today, Marshall men’s basketball coach Tom Herrion announced that guard Justin Edmonds will be redshirted and forward JP Kambola has an eligibility issue that needs to be resolved before he can play.  

A junior college transfer, Edmonds tore his ACL last December and will require a few more months of rehabilitation before returning to competition.

Herrion is optimistic that Kambola will be ruled eligible soon. During his three seasons at Marshall the 6-foot-9 junior forward has appeared in 20 games and scored ten points.  

In other news, after scoring a career high 31 points against South Carolina State last Friday, Marshall’s Elijah Pittman was named Co-Conference USA Player of the Week. He splits this week’s honor with FIU senior Rakeem Buckles who averaged 17.7 points and 12 rebounds through the Panthers first three games at the Kennesaw State Tournament.

The Thundering Herd returns to action at the Cam Henderson Center tomorrow against Rio Grande, tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
