IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa senior Roy Devyn Marble has been named to the Naismith Trophy Midseason Top 30 List. The announcement was made Thursday.
Marble currently ranks second in the Big Ten in scoring (17.8) and is the only player to score in double figures in every Big Ten game this season. The 6-foot-6, 200 pound guard is producing both offensively and defensively, as he is the only Big Ten player to average 16+ points and have 45+ steals.
The native of Southfield, Mich., is the only active Big Ten player, and one of nine in the country, to amass 1,525+ points, 325+ assists, 425+ rebounds and 150+ steals. The team co-captain has scored 26 points or more eight times in his career, including in big games against nationally ranked opponents Wisconsin and Michigan.
Marble is one of four Big Ten players on the list, joining Gary Harris and Keith Appling of Michigan State, and Nik Stauskas of Michigan.
Marble and the No. 16/15 Iowa Hawkeyes travel to Penn State on Saturday. Tipoff is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. (CT) at the Bryce Jordan Center. The game will be televised nationally on ESPNU.
