One day after the rest of the South Dakota State men’s basketball team returns from Brazil, junior guard George Marshall embarks on a weeklong, five game tour through Europe with Global Sports Academy.

 

“This is a great opportunity for George to get some game experience, which he hasn’t been able to do for quite a while, so we’re excited for him,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “This is also a chance for him to represent South Dakota State and our basketball team, on an international level, which is good for him and for our program.”

 

The Global Sports Academy selected Marshall for its Select/All-Star team to train, compete and tour in Belgium, with trips to Germany Holland and England. He leaves for Brussels on Aug. 13, and returns to the United States on Aug. 21.

 

A transfer from Wisconsin, Marshall joined the Jackrabbits midway through the 2013-14 season, but must sit out through the first semester of the upcoming season.
