Guard Marial Shayok is headed to Ames, Iowa, where he’ll suit up for the Iowa State Cyclones.
ISU coach Steve Prohm had this to say about Shayok:
"The first thing that stood out with Marial is that he comes from a program with a culture of winning and defending," Prohm said. "He has been well coached and he understands the demands of winning at this level.
"Marial has great length and size. He is a player that can really defend. I think he is just tapping the surface of what he can do offensively. I'm really looking forward to seeing what he can do in transition and space on the offensive end."
Virginia fans will remember Iowa State well from the Hoos’ 84-71 win over the Georges Niang-led squad in the 2016 Sweet Sixteen.
