Player to watch
Kinsey — The junior is more than just a high-scoring guard. Kinsey is Marshall’s go-to man for running up the score. He hasn’t scored less than 21 points in a game since Marshall’s loss to Campbell on Nov. 18, and even then he ended his night in double figures.
Kinsey has also been a constant presence on the court. He’s played all 40 minutes in four games this season, including when he scored 30 points against Akron on Dec. 1.
