Player Summary

Joe Marshall is a 6'2 combo guard originally from Alabama. Known as a defensive specialist, the 195-pound muscular guard has quick hands and good defensive instincts. While playing for current Boiler assistant Jim Thrash two years ago at Southern Idaho, Thrash assigned Marshall to the opposing team's best offensive threat. Although soft-spoken on the court, Marshall is known for his toughness and leadership. The all-conference juco guard is both mentally and physically strong. Marshall indicated to the Mississippi State staff in early May that he intended to transfer, due to not being comfortable at MSU. Coach Keady said last fall that if Thrash knew they were going to be in such a jam for solid point play, Thrash would have brought Marshall with him to Purdue. So it wasn't a stretch to think Thrash would be interested in Marshall when he decided to leave MSU. The MSU media guide summed up the "steady backcourt performer" as an "excellent perimeter shooter who has impressed the MSU coaching staff with his maturity and toughness." Marshall was an academic qualifier out of high school, but chose to go the juco route after a bruised kidney forced many Division I schools recruiting him to go with other players. Some of the schools active with him in high school were Tennessee, Wake Forest, Stanford, Miami and Murray State. An academic qualifier out of high school does not have to do the required two years in a junior college to become eligible for Division I, which is what Joe did when he accepted an offer after one season at CSI with Mississippi State University. His subsequent transfer to Purdue will force him to sit out one year, then be eligible for two years beginning in the 2000-2001 season. He will be allowed to practice with the team during the 1999-2000 season, but not participate in games. Marshall started off his Mississippi State year with some good numbers, but saw his scoring diminish as the year progressed. Averaging 13.6 minutes, Marshall averaged 3.1 points shooting (.315) from the field and (.324) from the perimeter. A strong freethrow shooter, he averaged 71-percent from the charity stripe, a shot that got better throughout the season. Mississippi State finished 20-13. In his one year with Jim Thrash at Southern Idaho, Marshall was the defensive stopper on a team with the 4th best defense among Division I junior colleges. He averaged a team-leading 13.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game as a true freshman and was selected to the All-Scenic West Athletic Conference Second Team. Jim Thrash's Golden Eagles finished with a 28-4 overall record and league-leading 15-3 conference mark. Marshall also tied for the team lead in steals (1.7 spg), in addition to shooting 46-percent from the field overall, 43-percent from beyond the three-point arc (5th in the SWAC) and 75-percent from the charity stripe (15th in the SWAC). Instrumental in CSI's #14 national ranking in the final NJCAA Division I poll and the team's #4 rating among the nation's scoring defense leaders. Marshall hit an incredible 21 of 22 freethrows in the opening game of the Region 18 tournament, and scored a career high 33 points. In high school, Marshall averaged 18.0 points per game as a senior, missing part of the season due to a bruised kidney. He averaged 19.0 points per game as a junior. Marshall visited Purdue the weekend of May 22nd, 1999, and has signed a scholarship offer to attend Purdue.
