Former Arizona State guard Jermaine Marshall was found dead in his apartment in France, Nantes Basketball Club announced on Friday.

The 28-year-old was living in Nantes, France to play for Hermine Nantes Basket.

“The NBH regrets to announce the brutal (passing away) of Jermaine Marshall,” a translated version of the club’s statement reads.

“The Club joins the pain of his family and loved ones and gives them all his support to face this terrible ordeal. The NBH is unable to play against ADA Blois on Saturday, Jan. 19 and has asked the LNB and ADA Blois to postpone the match at a later date.”

Marshall played one season for the Sun Devils in 2013-14 under then-head coach Herb Sendek after transferring from Penn State.

As a senior, he started 32 of 33 games and helped the team to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008-09.

Marshall was also second on the team in points per game (15.1), second in minutes played per game (31.7) and second in three-point field goal percentage (40.4 percent).

The former Sun Devil went on to play in Europe.

A cause of death has not been released by the team.
