LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Former University of Louisville men’s basketball player Marques Maybin met with members of the media on Tuesday at the Yum! Center to discus the upcoming 2008 Marques Maybin Classic to be played Dec. 6-8 at Freedom Hall in Louisville amongst other things.

The event is named for Maybin, the Cardinals’ No. 13 all-time scorer who was paralyzed from the waist down in a motorcycle accident on Aug. 5, 2003. He is currently enrolled at U of L to complete his degree requirements. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be earmarked for the Marques Maybin Medical Fund.

Maybin led the Cardinals in scoring in his final two years at U of L, including averaging 17.7 points as a senior during the 2000-01 season. He completed his career with 1,624 career points while playing at U of L from 1997-2001, ranking 13th all-time at Louisville and eighth in Conference USA history. His career 156-three point goals is seventh all-time for the Cardinals and he is sixth in career dunks with 95.

Donations to the fund may be sent to: Marques Maybin Medical Fund, c/o Republic Bank, 661 South Hurstbourne Parkway, Louisville, KY 40222.
