Posley Puts in Strong Showing at The Basketball Tournament

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – Former St. Bonaventure men's basketball standout Marcus Posley recently played in The Basketball Tournament and starred for his squad.

The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team tournament founded in 2014 spanning July and August with the winning team taking home a prize of $2 million.

In three games for Louisiana United, Posley averaged 16.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game while playing nearly 35 minutes per contest.

Louisiana United went 2-1 and defeated Team Arkansas (Arkansas Alumni) and Bluff City (Memphis Alumni) before falling to the Jackson TN Underdawgs in the third round.

Posley, who was the second-leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 during 2015-16 for the Bonnies, scored 1,126 points in his two seasons with St. Bonaventure and was an All-Atlantic 10 selection. He is currently on the program's All-Time Team ballot and was key to the Bonnies earning a share of the 2015-16 Atlantic 10 regular season championship and bid to the NIT. His 47 points in a win over Saint Joseph's that year ranks fourth all-time in program history.

After playing in the NBA Development League in 2016-17, Posley signed with Greek pro team Koroivos. He spent his first season in Europe during the 2017-18 season, averaging 11.5 points and 2.2 assists per game and was invited to play with the Denver Nuggets NBA Summer League team in 2018.

Posley was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NBA Development League Draft by the Sioux Falls Skyforce, an affiliate of the Miami Heat. He played the entire season for the Skyforce of the NBA G League, starting 17 of 47 games while averaging 9.7 points, 2.1 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 24.9 minutes per game. He shot over 35 percent from long range in the G League.

He moved to TSU-Hyundai Tbilisi of the Georgian League in 2018, averaging 13.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13 games for the squad. He averaged 33.2 minutes and shot 41.9 percent from the floor (39-for-93).
