Since these threads are popping up, here is mine:
Marshall has been stuck on the pine all season until Eddie finally gave him a go against Purdue and Michigan State. The results? Favorable:
47 minutes - (9-14FG) - (5-8FT) - (3-5 from 3PT) - 26PTS - 2 REB - 1 AST - 2 STL - 1 TO - 9PF
The guy had 4 points in 4 minutes against CCSU and 6 points in 9 minutes against Maine (also 4 fouls).
Can Marshall be the new guard to the rotation that can shoot? Hopefully, yes. He can play the 3 with Battle and Frazier in the game, or play the 2 to put Frazier on the bench of give Battle a breather (like he needs those ::)) Either way, he needs to continue to see playing time if he produces the way he has so far.
None of this is breakthrough stuff, just important to recognize the emergence of player who has had to go through a RS season and then only 24 minutes of PT through the first 13 games.
Sidenote: Whats up with his high foul rate? I haven’t seen all of the last two games since Seton Hall was playing at the same time, so I don’t really know why he had 4 and 5 fouls.
