About Marial Shayok

Marial Shayok is a confident scorer who relished the opportunity to play a major offensive role for the first time in his only season at Iowa State.  Widely regarded as a top-150 prospect in the high school class of 2014 out of Blair Academy, Shayok emerged as a prospect averaging 12 points and 5.5 rebounds per game at the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship for his native Canada.  He carved out a small but steady role at Virginia as an underclassman averaging a career-best 8.9 points per game as a junior but opted to transfer to Iowa State for his final year of eligibility.  The Ottawa, Ontario native averaged 18.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2 assists per game as a senior to earn All-Big XII 1st Team and Big XII Tournament Most Valuable Player honors while guiding Steve Prohm’s Cyclones to the NCAA Tournament.

  • Not especially tall for a wing measured at 6’5.5 in shoes at the NBA Combine, but has a terrific 7’0.25 wingspan and a lean 197-pound frame to go along with solid all-around athleticism.
     
  • Played a big role as the most aggressive scorer on a team with no shortage of offensive talent. Served primarily as a floor spacer but did a little bit of everything else hunting shots in the Cyclones’ prolific offense scoring at a strong rate creating off the dribble as well.  

Defensive Analysis

  • Has good length and some instincts in the passing lanes defensively.  Shows some competitiveness and fares well when he’s bringing consistent energy. 
     
  • Allowed 0.868 points per Isolation possession and 0.857 points per Post Up possessionlast season flashing some versatility in some matchups.
