Central Michigan men’s basketball off to 4-2 start

MT. PLEASANT – The Central Michigan men’s basketball team wrapped up its Lone Star Showcase in Austin, Texas Wednesday. 

The Chippewas entered the tournament with an untarnished record, but dropped two of three, losing to St. Bonaventure and Little Rock. During these opening games, head coach Keno Davis says he has enjoyed watching two Chippewas in particular, Braylon Rayson and Marcus Keene.

In 2015, Rayson scored his 1,000th career point, earning his third team All-MAC honors with the Chippewas. Keene, a new addition to Central’s team, transferred from Youngstown State where he started in all 32 games.

"I think with [Marcus Keene] and Braylon Rayson, they’re learning how to play with each other,” said Keno Davis. “They’ve got a chance to really improve their individual games, but help us improve as a team.”

Central Michigan travels to Green Bay Saturday, November 26. Game time is set for 3 p.m.
