Panathinaikos BC announces the two-year deal (1+1) with Marcus Foster.
Foster was born in June 3, 1995 in Wichita Falls, Texas and comes off an impressive season with Hapoel Holon, averaging 19.2 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.2 rebounds over 34 games split between the Israeli League and Basketball Champions League.
Marcus Foster was a surprise star at Kansas State, scoring 25 points in his second game in uniform. In a game against Texas in February, he contributed 34 points. On the season, Foster averaged 15.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, and he shot 40 percent from the 3-point arc. He went to the LeBron James Skill Academy in the summer.
In his sophomore year, Foster was named to the Preseason First Team All-Big 12. However, Foster had a very disappointing season, which he blamed on focusing too much on the NBA. He gained weight and was suspended three games into the conference season. Foster's points per game averages dropped to 12.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. At the end of the season coach he transferred to Creighton since he had developed a relationship with coach Greg McDermott.
Per NCAA policy, Foster was forced to sit out a season. Coming into his redshirt junior season, Foster was named Preseason Big East Honorable Mention. He was the first player in 30 years to score 15 or more points in the first eight games of Creighton's season. On February 19, 2017, Foster scored a career-high 35 points in an 87-70 win against Georgetown.
Foster scored 638 points as a junior, the highest for a Creighton newcomer, for an 18.2 points per game average, third highest in the Big East. After deliberating for a few days, he opted to return for his senior year.
In his final college game, a loss to Kansas State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, he scored just five points but embraced Bruce Weber after the game. Foster averaged 19.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game as a senior. Foster was named to the First Team All-Big East.
On August 2, 2018, Foster signed his professional contract with Wonju DB Promy of the Korean Basketball League (KBL). He finished the season as the league fourth-leading scorer with 25.2 points, along with 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
On March 28, 2019, Foster signed with Champville SC of the Lebanese Basketball League for the rest of the season.
