Nantes announced that guard Jermaine Marshall was found dead. He was reportedly found dead in his apartment, however, his cause of death has not been released, according to TMZ Sports. He ranked second in both minutes (31.7) and points (15.1) per game on a team that made the NCAA tournament for the first time in five years.

His French team said in a translated statement: 'The Club joins the pain of his family and loved ones and gives them all support to face this awful ordeal'. He most recently played for the Hermine Nantes Basket in France.

During his college days, Marshall played for three seasons with Penn State and one with Arizona State before turning pro.

"The Club joins the pain of his family and loved ones and gives them all support to face this awful ordeal", part of the statement read, as translated from French by Google. Marshall averaged 15 points per game in his lone season with the Sun Devils, helping propel the team to an NCAA tournament berth. Nantes also announced that its upcoming domestic game is put off in mourning of the player.

Marshall then played one season for the Sun Devils in 2013-14 under then-head coach Herb Sendek after transferring from the Nittany Lions' program.

The highlight of Marshall's career might have come during ASU's rivalry game against Arizona in which he went off for 29 points in a double-overtime 69-66 win over a No. 2-ranked Wildcats team.
