Shayok's Strong Start Continues
Talk about making an entrance.
Two days after bursting for 34 points in his Delaware Blue Coats debut, Marial Shayok went off again - this time dropping an outrageous 42 points Monday in the Coats' 141-135 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants at 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington, Delaware.
That brings Shayok's grand total to an outrageous 76 points through his first two professional regular season games.

The 2019 no. 54 overall pick hit more than half his shots in Monday's win (Delaware's first of the year), going 14 for 27 from the field, and 3 for 9 from 3-point territory. He also converted all nine of his free throw attempts, snagged nine rebounds, and handed out three assists.
The 76ers signed Shayok to a two-way contract this past summer. He spent the fall in Sixers' training camp, and is shooting 54.9% overall (28-51) in Delaware.
