Head Coach, North Carolina Tar Heels

Marcus Ginyard is an outstanding young man and basketball player. He helped us win many games at the University of North Carolina. I truly enjoyed coaching Marcus and would enjoy coaching him again. He has a wonderful savvy about the game of basketball. He is an outstanding defensive player and truly knows how to play the game on the offensive end as well. I think he would be a tremendous asset for anyone.

Head Coach, University of North Carolina Greensboro

Marcus Ginyard is one of the most versatile players I have ever been on a basketball court with as a player or a coach. His ability to effect the game is so many different ways separates him from most, but what makes him extremely special as a player is his savvy, competitiveness, and commitment to the details. Beyond basketball there simply isn’t a better friend or human being than Marcus Ginyard. When I think about Marcus, basketball is the last thing that comes to my mind. He is honest, trustworthy and loyal. Point blank, Marcus is as special as they come!

The first thing to come to mind when I think of with Marcus is his smile and outgoing spirit. This zest for life has an incredibly positive effect on the people around him, and endeared him to his teammates here at Carolina. Carolina alumni will always remember Marcus as a member of the 2009 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship team, but my guess is Marcus will go on to make similar championship impressions off the court.
