Kasey Jo Hinton embraces leadership and defensive roles for UMHB women’s basketball

BELTON, Texas- It was early January 2022, and the UMHB women’s basketball coaching staff was faced with a critical challenge in the days leading up to a Jan. 3 duel with Concordia. Five players, all contributors, would be unavailable, something that had the potential to hurt the Cru on the defensive end. So they turned to Kasey Jo Hinton, the team’s senior forward, who promptly rose to the challenge, filling several roles as UMHB opened 2022 with a 66-59 win.
