|Bon Voyage! Marshall Phillips to France
Marshall Phillips, the 6’5 swingman..
.. (1.96m), will continue his career in France, signing a contract this week with Charleville-Mézières in France Pro B. Phillips, the athletic veteran, who has European experience in Italy, Belgium and Germany, departed for France this weekend. Phillips is a well-rounded ballplayer, who has shined all over the world. He is a two-time CBA (Continental Basketball Association-USA) All-Star (2005 & 2008). He possesses explosive athleticism, a strong, competitive nature and the ability to guard up to four positions (he starred as a collegian at Appalachian State, playing power forward). Phillips can score inside and outside, able to hit the jumper, but also very dangerous slashing to the basket. He is a strong defender who always ranks among the league leaders in steals, wherever he plays. A very saavy player, who lives to win, expect Phillips to play a strong role for Charleville-Mézières this season; he should be an impact player in Pro B.
