Niagara River Lions Welcome Back Former Brock Badger Matt Marshall

Released: April 11, 2017

St. Catharines, ON - The River Lions announced today that they have brought back forward Matt Marshall. He returns to the team fresh off a season with the River Lions International Partner Team, BK 04 AC LB Spišská Nová Ves (SNV), in the Slovakian Extraliga where he averaged 7.3 points and 6.6 rebounds in 26 games.

Marshall, a Brock University Graduate, averaged 11.4 points and 8.9 rebounds as a Badger and was the River Lions’ second round draft pick in the NBLC All-Canadian Draft this past September. He played in the River Lions exhibition game against the Raptors 905 before being sent to Slovakia as the first player to enter in the River Lions development program.

“We’re happy to have Matt back on the team,” said President and General Manager, Jeffrey Sotiriou. “I think Matt made great improvements in Slovakia and really displayed the benefits of having SNV as an international partner. Matt was able to work on his game all season and now joins our team a better player than when he left.” 

Marshall will travel with the team on their East Coast road trip this weekend and will make his return to the Den on April 21st when the River Lions take on the Moncton Miracles for Minor Sport Appreciation Night.
