Former men’s basketball player Elmore to continue career overseas

Former Marshall guard Jon Elmore signed with Pallacanestro Triste of Lega Basket Serie A in Triste, Italy. LBA is the highest level of basketball in Italy.

“It is a dream come true,” Elmore said. “I get paid to wake up everyday and go do what I love. I grew up at Marshall and I think it’s really prepared me for this next chapter in my journey.”

Elmore is the all-time leader in points, assists and made three-pointers in both Conference USA and program history.

He averaged 20.3 points per game and had 187 assists to lead the Herd during the 2018-19 season.
