No more Marshall

The first conference scoring champion in Jacksonville State’s basketball history will not be returning to the program.
Sources have confirmed Trenton Marshall is not back with the Gamecocks after leading the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring last season with a 17.7-point average. He would have been a senior this season.
It was not immediately known the reason for his separation. He was suspended by coach James Green for what became the final four games of the season last year for violating team rules related to medical policy.
Reports on several basketball websites have linked Marshall to shopping his talents in Greece and, recently, landing a tryout for a team in Poland.
Attempts to reach JSU coach James Green for comment were unsuccessful.
The Gamecocks have been trying to finalize their roster for weeks. They have regained the full NCAA complement of 13 scholarships after facing academic progress sanction, and reportedly had until Monday to do so.
They eased some of the scholarship tension by not renewing aid to guard John Barnes, who has since landed at West Georgia.
