Marcus Keene Continues To Shine With 40-Point Game


Central Michigan star Marcus Keene continues to shine.

Despite the Chippewas’ overtime loss to Ball State on Saturday night, Keene was once again the best player on the court and lighting up the scoreboard.

Keene finished the game with another 40-point performance, his sixth game with at least 40-points this season.

The 5-foot-9 guard may be small in stature, but he’s the nation’s leading scorer with more than 30 points per game (30.2). Earlier this season, Keene put together a 50-point performance. It was the first time a player has hit the 50-point mark in a Division I game since South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters dropped 53 points in 2013.

To add to the excitement of Keene’s latest 40-point outing, Pittsburgh Steelers star and Central Michigan alum Antonio Brown was in attendance.

Keene, who has more 40-point games in a single season than any player in the last two decaes, returns to action on Tuesday, Feb. 21 against Northern Illinois.
