Marlin leaves IPFW

Jonny Marlin, who started 28 of 30 games as a freshman point last season, has left the IPFW men's basketball team, coach Tony Jasick said.

"He's decided that he wants to find a better campus fit for him than what he found at IPFW," said Jasick, who led the Mastodons to an 11-19 record last season.

Marlin, the 5-foot-10 guard who played at Center Grove, was second on the team in average minutes played at 27.2, led the team with 3.5 assists, and averaged 4.3 points.

He finished with 104 assists against 51 turnovers. He had 13 points twice, and had 10 assists against Nebraska Omaha.

"I've got no problems with Jonny," Jasick said. "I hope he finds what he's looking for in a college campus. I think he's looking for a little closer-knit campus community; a more traditional, smaller feel."

Jasick said he did not know where Marlin would attend next season.

Jasick said the departure of Marlin will open the point guard position for returning guards Justin Jordan and Isaiah McCray, along with Kevin Harden, a transfer from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Fla.

"Justin Jordan is getting better, and Isaiah McCray's got a chance now to compete for playing time, so we'll see," Jasick said.
