Former Saint Mary’s guard Paul Marigney recently signed a contract to play for Cocodrilos de Caracas in the Venezuelan Professional Basketball League (Liga Profesional de Baloncesto or LPB). He joined the four-time LPB champions over the weekend, just in time for the semifinals of the league playoffs.
Cocodrilos defeated La Guaira 79-76 in game 1 of its semifinal series last night. The two teams will play again tonight in game 2 beginning at 5 p.m. (Pacific).
In 16 games with Prima Veroi in Italy’s Lega Due, Marigney averaged 18.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
