HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – It was announced on Monday that freshman guard Kelvin Amayo has decided to leave the Marshall men’s basketball team.

“We were surprised and caught off guard by Kelvin’s timing in deciding to transfer after a little over a week of practice and three games since becoming eligible,” said head coach Tom Herrion. “We wish him the best in the future.”

From Newark, N.J., Amayo had been on the Marshall campus since January of 2012, but as a non-qualifier was not allowed to practice until Dec. 20. He made his collegiate debut at Kentucky on Dec. 22 and also played against Delaware State and at Ohio. Amayo averaged 2.7 points and 9.3 minutes of play over those three games.

“I want to thank Marshall University for giving me a chance,” Amayo said. “I just wanted to be closer to home.”
