NU's Marcotullio to play for Great Britain

Northwestern junior guard Alex Marcotullio was named to the U20 Great Britain national team on Monday.

Marcotullio will play for Great Britain in the FIBA U20 Division B European championships next month in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

Marcotullio played for the U20 team last year and averaged 13.9 points and 1.7 steals to help Great Britain to a sixth-place finish. His maternal grandmother is from Scotland, which allows him to play for Great Britain.

Marcotullio averaged 6.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists for Northwestern as a sophomore. He scored in double figures in five of the Wildcats’ last six games.
