Kendall Dewan Marshall (born August 19, 1991) is an American professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was born in Dumfries, Virginia, and attended Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. He was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the 2012 NBA draft with the 13th overall pick.

High school career

Marshall led Bishop O'Connell to the 2010 Virginia Independent Schools Division I championship as a senior. He also led Bishop O'Connell to the semifinals of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. He averaged 15.3 points, nine rebounds and six assists as a senior.

Considered a four-star recruit by, Marshall was listed as the No. 7 point guard and the No. 22 player in the nation in 2010.[1]

College career

Freshman season

At the start of his first season at North Carolina, Marshall provided more depth at the point guard position to relieve starting point guard Larry Drew II, as he got more used to the system at North Carolina. However, after a disappointing showing at Georgia Tech in which the Tar Heels lost by twenty points, Roy Williams took the gamble and inserted Marshall into the starting lineup at a win versus Clemson. Soon Drew transferred to UCLA, allowing Marshall to take on the leadership role with poise; as he dished out sixteen assists to three turnovers at a win over Florida State on February 6.

Sophomore season

Marshall had an excellent sophomore season in which he set the all time UNC assist record of 351,surpassing former UNC point guard Ed Cota as the all-time leader in assists in a single season in school history. On March 9, 2012, Marshall set another record, the all-time ACC record in assists in a single season with 311, surpassing the previous record set by former Georgia Tech point guard Craig Neal.[2]

Marshall fractured his wrist during North Carolina's NCAA tournament win against Creighton University, after landing hard when driving for a layup.[3] He did not return for the remainder of the season, as Carolina fell to Kansas in the regional finals. Marshall won the 2012 Bob Cousy award, joining past winners Raymond Felton (2005) and Ty Lawson (2009) as Tar Heels who have won the award.[4]
