During last evenings closing ceremony at the NBAPA Top 100 Camp, Marshall Plumlee was named to the five man workout warrior team for his work ethic during one of the nation’s top events. Plumlee used the opportunity of playing with some of the nation’s best players to get better, but coaches advice helped as much. Plumlee visited Virginia today and he most recently met with the Duke coaching staff as he nears his decision on where he’ll play his college basketball. BDN caught up to Marshall and got his thoughts on the process. [Discuss this and more on the BDN Premium message board becoming a member today]
What is it like to play with some of the nation’s top prospects?
It’s a lot of fun because most of the kids have good attitudes and learn from one another. We all do certain things well and we take some of that to make ourselves better.
Do you feel like you’ve played well so far?
I’m happy with what I’ve done. A couple of moves have gone my way and I feel like I’m rebounding better. I could be playing a little better defense but I’m happy with the way that things have gone.
I watched one sequence in the last game where you had a three point play and then dished an assist on the break the next time down giving your team a one point lead.
I didn’t really notice but when you start to mesh together as a team things goes better. You want that kind of thing to become second nature.
Do your brothers keep tabs on you these days?
Yeah, yeah, more and more I’m talking to them, especially recently. So, a lot more of late. I really enjoy getting closer to them. I got time to spend time with Miles at Duke recently. I have to catch up with Mason who is in Chicago working a camp. I really look to them for advice especially at this stage in my recruitment for their opinions mean a lot to me.
