Kane makes 2nd team All-CUSA
HUNTINGTON -- Marshall Thundering Herd guard Dre Kane, the conference assists leader, was an All-Conference USA men's basketball second team selection.
Kane delivered one dozen assists Saturday against East Carolina to edge Miguel Paul of the Pirates for the title with a 7.1 average to 6.9.
The 6-foot-4 Kane, a junior, ranks eighth among the nation's assist leaders.
Kane also leads C-USA in average minutes played (37.2), is 10th in scoring (14.9), tied for second in steals (1.8) and is sixth in assist-turnover ratio (1.7).
He made the transition this season from playing on the wing to the point guard position and received his third all-conference team spot. He was a repeat pick for the second team after being named to the third team as a freshman.
The Herd guard from Pittsburgh, Pa., recorded the fourth triple-double in school history with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a Nov. 18, 2012, game at Hofstra.
Josh Davis of Tulane, which faces Marshall in the C-USA tournament first round Wednesday in Tulsa, Okla., was a first team selection. Davis, a 6-8 junior forward who began his career at N.C. State in the Atlantic Coast Conference, was the only C-USA player with double-double averages of 17.5 points and 10.3 rebounds.
Tulane sophomore guard Ricky Tarrant made the all-conference second team.
All-conference voting was done by the head coaches and selected media members.
