Cool statistic: Marble is one of only two Big Ten players since 1986 to produce at least 1,675 points, 375 assists, 450 rebounds and 175 steals in his career. Marble and his father, Roy, are the only father-son duo in Big Ten history to each surpass the 1,000-point mark.

What Insiders Say

Iowa coach Fran McCaffrey

“So when you're making a decision as to whether I take this guy or another guy, you might take another guy who, oh, he's a great rebounder or he's a great 3-point shooter, but when you look at Devyn Marble, he's terrific at every aspect of the game, and you can put him in and he'll pretty much do anything for you. Those guys are really valuable, and ultimately, franchises want to win games, and that's what he is, is a winning player.”

 

What Outsiders Say

California coach Cuonzo Martin

“Marble's a guy who can run some point, play the two, play the three, and some cases can possibly play the four. With his size and his ability to handle the ball, he can make shots, crash the glass and does a great job of catching and shooting. And I think his skill level definitely translates to the next level.”
