Here is a screen grab of Marshall and Drew walking off the court. Of course many remember that Marshall took over the starting point job at North Carolina from Drew during the 2010-2011 season. Drew would leave the UNC program mid-season shortly after that decision was made.

During the 2016-17 season Marshall played for G-League’s Reno Big Horns. He was on the Los Angeles Clippers summer league team. Drew played on the Philadelphia 76ers Summer league team in 2017.
