Boyne City’s Redman Returns to the Court for CMU

MT. PLEASANT – The Central Michigan men’s basketball program is just under two weeks away from tipping off its season, as the Chippewas look replace leading scorers Marcus Keene and Braylon Rayson.

One player the Chippewas will be turning to more this winter is Boyne native and redshirt sophomore guard Corey Redman.

At 6-foot-6, the former Rambler redshirted last season after appearing in 26 games during his freshman campaign.

“With Corey being a redshirt sophomore coming in, we think he’s a guy that’s able to bring depth to our team,” coach Keno Davis said. “Really has been able to develop into a great 3-point shooter.”

As a freshman Redman shot better than 50 percent from 3-point range and averaged just under two points per game.

“It’s definitely a relief. I’m really happy to be able to get on the court,” Redman said. “It was a long year even though the year did go by, it did feel pretty long just not being able to get on the court. So I’m excited to get this year going.”
