HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Marshall guard DeAndre Kane looked at the box score from the Thundering Herd's 70-67 win Wednesday over Morehead State and shook his head again.
His eyes were fixated on his 5-for-20 shooting from the floor and 3-for-9 shooting from the free throw line. His head had started shaking in disbelief at the interview table and hadn't stopped as he stood in the hallway of the Cam Henderson Center.
He looked at the reporter in front of him and asked him to give Herd fans a message.
"I won't keep missing," he said. "Just jot that down."
Kane's shooting fortunes haven't been very bright since his 33-point, 11-rebound, 10-assist performance in Marshall's loss to Hofstra.
His off-night Wednesday came on the heels of Saturday's win over Nevada, where he hit 3-of-14 shots both from the floor and the free throw line.
Yet, while his shots may not fall, he has to be happy with his numbers in other categories. Kane's all-around game is flourishing, and he remains an integral part of the team as the Herd (4-3) prepares to host the North Carolina-Wilmington (3-3) at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Kane admits his shooting touch isn't where it should be.
"My shot's kind of off right now," he said. "That's something I have to work on. I have to get back in the gym and get my stroke back together. It'll fall. It'll come."
His return to the gym didn't take long.
