Sandi Marcius, a 6-foot-10 forward from Purdue, has transferred to play basketball at DePaul for the 2013-14 season, Blue Demons head coach Oliver Purnell announced Thursday.
Marcius, a Purdue graduate, will be immediately eligible for one season with DePaul as a graduate student. The Croatia native played three seasons with Purdue, and his best performances came during his last 11 games of the 2012-2013 season. During that span, he averaged 6.8 points and 3.6 rebounds, including a career-high 13 points against No. 7 Michigan on March 6. Before the Michigan game, Marcius scored 10 points with 3 steals in an upset win at No. 17 Wisconsin on March 3.
Marcius is DePaul's second transfer athlete in the last month. In early June, former Illinois forward Myke Henry transferred to DePaul. Henry will have two years of eligibility with DePaul after he sits out the upcoming season, per NCAA rules.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
