Class cut short for Marcius

After requesting his release from Purdue, former Boilermaker forward Sandi Marcius has entered a battle with the school to pay for his final two college courses.

The 6-foot-9 native of Croatia has two classes, or $7,000 worth of course work, to complete before earning his degree, per reports from multiple outlets. If Marcius were to finish his degree, he could then transfer to another program without penalty and play right away for whatever institution he chooses.

As of now, per NCAA rules, Marcius' college career would be over if he had to transfer unless he were granted a hardship waiver, which would seem unlikely in his circumstances. Whether Purdue folds and gives the scholarship dollars to the departing forward is yet to be determined, but there is bound to be some controversy over the decision regardless of the resolution.

We'll continue to monitor this and have more information in the coming days.
