Give us the scouting report on Marquise Simmons. How would you best describe yourself as a player?
Very aggressive and strong power forward man with range out to 18-20 feet. Very good "around the basket" scorer and finisher. I take pride in getting stops and rebounds for my team, I am capable of guarding on the wing as well as in the post successfully. I am a very hard working individual who wants to win anytime the score is being kept, no matter if it's practice or a game.
Looking back on your college career at St. Bonaventure, what do you appreciate the most about that experience?
Looking back to Bonaventure there is so much to appreciate. I appreciate the university itself for giving me the opportunity to get a free education while playing basketball. The total community surrounding Bonaventure is something that I will forever cherish. It made me into the person answering these questions today; the love and support there was second to none. My coaches and teammates (managers included) were all big parts of my success at Bonaventure and they stuck beside me during bad times and never gave up on me. For that I have a place in my heart for them all forever and ever.
