For the first time this season, a Marshall basketball player was honored by Conference USA. Taevion Kinsey won the award as voted on by a media panel representing the 14 member schools. The 6 foot 5 freshman from Columbus made the most of his first two starts for Marshall. In the Herd's first two conference wins of the year, Kinsey shot 13 of 18 from the floor. Against ODU, he had a career night in 7 categories. He played the entire 40 minutes against Charlotte on Saturday. Against the 49ers, he tied a career high of 14 points and had 5 rebounds, 3 assists and two steals. It is Kinsey’s first-career C-USA weekly award.
