Boykins to Redshirt

Marshall head men’s basketball coach Tom Herrion announced Friday that freshman guard DeVince Boykins will redshirt the 2011-12 season.

“After discussions with DeVince and his family, I am in full support of his decision to redshirt this season,” Herrion said. “I am excited about the long term impact this decision will mean for both DeVince and our basketball program. DeVince is an outstanding young man with a very bright future.”
Boykins, from Forest City, N.C., will have four years of eligibility remaining which will start with the 2012-13 season.
