Painter on Marcius
In a radio interview at the Final Four Monday, Coach Matt Painter said he will try to keep fifth-year senior Sandi Marcius if he can.
A source told GoldandBlack.com and others last week that Marcius has asked for his release from Purdue, which would allow him to spend his final season of eligibility elsewhere after graduation.
Painter and Marcius are expected to talk further after Painter returns from the Final Four.
Marcius was one of Purdue's most important players at the end of this past season.
"We've talked," Painter told 1260 in Indianapolis, according to "Query and Schultz" co-host Derek Schultz on Twitter. "(I'm) going to try my best to keep him. He was great, but I don't want someone that doesn't want to be here."
