Marcus Hall of Portland State Given Another Year of Eligibility

Portland State received some good news last week, as wing man Marcus Hall was granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA.

Hall and Portland State were appealing the NCAA to get a year back after Hall was able to compete in only eight games in 2012-13 due to a calf injury.

The news of Hall's additional year is significant for the Viking program. The 6-4 guard started 31 of 32 games for PSU this past season. He averaged 7.6 points and 3.5 rebounds. Hall made a team-high 51 three-point field goals, hitting .395 from distance.

Hall will be one of four starters and 10 letterwinners returning next season from a Viking team that was 17-15 in 2013-14.hat was 17-15 in 2013-14.
Last season, Hall played the second most minutes on the team, almost 75% of them. Offensively, he was mostly a three-point specialist - he shot 39% from outside and shot over twice as many threes as twos. His return certainly is good news for a PSU team could be very dangerous next season, as they'll have one of the deepest backcourts in the conference.
