With just two regular season games remaining and a guaranteed spot in the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in two weeks, the Gamecocks (11-16, 7-10 OVC) will play out the season without the 6-foot-5 combo player from Garyville, La. The team’s leading scorer will still be allowed to practice with the team for the remainder of the season.
“Trenton did not follow our procedures for being sick or injured,” Green said. “The athletic training staff has policies and so do I, and they are both in place so that our players can be 100 percent healthy.”
In his first season after transferring from Jones County Junior College in Ellisville, Miss., Marshall is leading the OVC in scoring with 17.7 points per game.
The Gamecocks will play their final home game of the 2009-10 season on Saturday, when they host Presbyterian College at 7 p.m. at Pete Mathews Coliseum as part of the Bracketbusters event. It will be senior night for the JSU program, which will honor its lone senior Amadou Mbodji in a pregame ceremony.
