Player Bio

Markelle N'Gai Fultz is the son of Ebony Fultz. He was born in Upper Marlboro, Maryland in 1998. Fultz played his high school ball at the famed DeMatha Catholic High in Hyattsville, Maryland. DeMatha has produced numerous NBA players. As a senior, Fultz led DeMatha to the Maryland Private School League Championship. He was also named a McDonald's All-American. Fultz then earned MVP honors at the FIBA Americas World Championship in 2016. Follow Fultsz on Twitter (@MarkelleF) and Instagram (@MarkelleFultz). Fultz showed flashes of brilliance during his one-and-done season with the Washington Huskies, though he was ultimately limited to just 25 games. He missed six of the team's final eight games with a knee injury and didn't get a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament, with Washington putting together a 9-22 record on the year. When healthy, Fultz led the Huskies in both shot rate and usage rate, but he was efficient as well, shooting 47.6 percent from the field and 41.3 percent from distance. He led the entire Pac-12 in scoring at 23.2 PPG, which was also good for sixth in the nation that season. It wasn't just scoring, however, as Fultz chipped in 5.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks. When it was all said and done, Fultz not only made the Pac-12 All-Freshman team, but he took home First-Team All-Conference honors as well. He was selected first overall in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers.
