During last season’s Carolina Classic, Marshall Plumlee had a couple of breakout games where he showed his potential. Plumlee, of course, is the younger brother of Miles and Mason, both of whom are Duke Blue Devils. This coming season Marshall has a chance to start for Christ School. He plans on continuing to refine his game and build his strength during his last two years of high school. The talented Greenies lost all but four lettermen, but Coach David Gaines is already reloading and plans to make a run at their fourth consecutive North Carolina Private School State Championship.
While at this past weekend’s Carolina Challenge, Marshall showed off some new moves against the state’s best players. Plumlee showed a spin move in the lane which was quick and hard to stop for opposing players. When he goes to that move he takes up a lot of the lane with his length and 6′-10″ frame.
The key for Marshall will be to forge his own identity in the coming season. This will be the first time Plumlee will be playing without his brothers at Christ School. Marshall sat down with BDN Premium for an exclusive one-on-one interview. He talked about making his own destiny, his brother’s game in tonight’s McDonald’s All American game, and much more in a lengthy interview. We hope you enjoy his insights about having two brothers at Duke and what he expects to accomplish in the coming years.
Where did that spin move come from?
Oh from the top of the key? (smiling) I’ve been working on my ball handling and still have a long ways to go, but I’m going to keep working on it. I’m trying to add to my game whatever I can.
What goes into that work? What is your routine?
Basically, little bits and pieces of what I get at these kinds of camps. I listen to what coaches tell me. I go swimming in the morning so I can really run the floor well and have good conditioning. I always try every practice, even though I have a post mindset, to do all my ball handling with two basketballs. I need to do more, but it’s a work in progress.
Have you been working out with your brother Mason?
