Marcius released from Purdue

Forward Sandi Marcius has been released from his scholarship at Purdue, the school announced on Thursday.

Sandi Marcius will play his fifth year of eligibility elsewhere. The forward has been granted a release from his scholarship.

"We have invested four years and significant resources into helping Sandi develop from both an educational and athletic standpoint," Purdue coach Matt Painter said in a statement. "Certainly, having Sandi here for a fifth year was in our plans and we anticipated him having a great final year in our program. We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Marcius will be eligible to play immediately in his fifth year, due to transfer exceptions for graduate students. There have been no indications as to where he could play next season.

Last season, Marcius averaged 3.3 points per game while playing sparing minutes. He filled in for the inconsistent A.J. Hammons this season and made his biggest impact toward the end of the year.

Marcius is a native of Nedelisce, Croatia, and played his high-school basketball at La Lumiere (Ind.) Academy.
