Guard Kevon Voyles joins Herd hoops

— By Bill Cornwell

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Marshall has picked up another piece in hopes of filling the void of its most productive players from last season not returning.

Kevon Voyles, a 6-foot-3 guard announced through social media he’s joining the Thundering Herd program. Voyles comes to Marshall from Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference member Maryland Eastern Shore.

Voyles’ arrival addresses backcourt needs for the Herd caused by the graduation of last year’s leading scorer, Taevion Kinsey, and the departure of four-year starting point guard Andrew Taylor, who is now at Mississippi State.

Voyles is a Cape Charles, Virginia native and was the Hawks’ leading scorer last season with an average of 12.9 points. He shot better than 49 percent overall, 71.7 percent from the free-throw line and just under 33 percent from the three-point line.

He played in 20 games during the 2022-2023 season for a team that finished 18-13 and 9-5 in the MEAC. Voyages started 16 contests, scoring a career-high 27 points with seven rebounds in 26 minutes against South Carolina State on January 21.

In his three seasons at Maryland-Eastern Shore, Voyles played in 72 games and averaged 8.3 points. During the 2021-2022 campaign, he was especially effective from behind the three-point line and shot better than 40 percent from long distance.

Voyles becomes the third addition by way of the transfer portal this offseason for Marshall, which already added Indiana State shooting guard Cameron Crawford and Texas State power forward Nate Martin.
