Former Arizona State men's basketball player Jermaine Marshall has died at age 28, according to his pro basketball team in France.
The Nantes Basketball Club confirmed in a press release Friday that Marshall passed away, and has requested that its upcoming game on Saturday be postponed.
Marshall was reportedly found dead in his apartment in France. The cause of death has not been released.
Marshall played his final NCAA basketball season at ASU in the 2013-14 season after spending his first three years at Penn State. He averaged 15.1 points in 32 games in his senior season and helped lead the Sun Devils to the 2014 NCAA Tournament. He scored a season-high 29 points in ASU's win over No. 2 Arizona in 2014.
Marshall briefly played for the Houston Rockets in the 2014-15 NBA season before embarking on a pro career in Europe, including stops in Italy, Greece, Finland and the Netherlands.
