Former Wofford College and Greenbrier basketball standout Eric Marshall will be remembered Dec. 1 when the Wolfpack play host to Grovetown.
A ceremony will be held between the girls and boys games. Marshall's uniform will be retired, and Greenbrier will make a presentation to Marshall's family.
Wofford basketball coach Mike Young will present a Terriers jersey to the school. Donations will be accepted for the Eric Marshall Foundation.
Wofford basketball T-shirts with Marshall's name and number printed on the back will be given to anyone who makes a donation of $20 or more.
Marshall died in April after collapsing during a pick-up basketball game.
Marshall graduated from Greenbrier in 2003 after playing basketball under coach Garrett Black. He was named Player of the Year by The Columbia County News-Times twice. In 2003, Marshall was named The Augusta Chronicle Boys Basketball Player of the Year.
He earned a scholarship to play at Wofford College, where he averaged 10 points per game, but was slowed during his final two seasons by knee injuries.
The 24-year-old was expected to serve as Greenbrier's assistant basketball coach this season and was working to become certified to teach.
