Three Guys Before The Game – Marsalis Basey Visits (Episode 381)

Size does NOT matter. Just ask Marsalis Basey.

The Martinsburg native stands just 5 feet 7 inches, but his career statistics as a West Virginia University basketball player remain large.

Nearly 30 years after playing his final game, the Martinsburg native is still in the top-8 all-time in career assists, assists-per-game and three-point shooting percentage. Oh yeah, Basey also played professional baseball while attending WVU.

In this episode, Basey reflects on his WVU career and shares the motivation provided by his uncle, WVU hall-of-fame member Fulton Walker. What lengths did John Calipari go to recruit Basey?

Those stories and listener questions come your way in episode 381.
