Inside the numbers: Kinsey averaged 13.0 points on 45 percent shooting from the floor during 24 minutes per game last week; he also had 3.5 rebounds per contest through the Mountaineers’ pair of games. The sophomore racked up a game-best 24 points on Wednesday at MCLA to help SVC return from the winter break with a win; that was not only a career-best for Kinsey, but it was also the most points any player on the team has scored this season. The Wednesday performance was just the second time Kinsey reached 20 points with his first coming January 13, 2018 at Dean.
What Coach Johnson is saying: “Kajuan was phenomenal on the offense and defense. His offense was sparked by his intensity and attention to detail on defense. We give Kajuan the challenge of guarding the opponents’ top scorer every night. He will continue to get better and will be a piece to our success.”
