Marquis Devante Teague (born February 28, 1993) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA. He was one of the top rated high school basketball players in the class of 2011.
In the first game of the 2011-12 season and his career as a Wildcat, Teague started and scored 16 points on 7 of 12 shooting. One of Teague's best performances of the season came against the Portland Pilots, a game where he scored 14 points, had a career high of eight assists, and a career high of 4 steals, all while committing zero turnovers and shooting 5 of 6 from the free throw line. Against the Louisville Cardinals, Teague scored just 4 points on 1 of 8 shooting, but did dish out 5 assists and played good defense on Louisville point guard Peyton Siva, who shot 2 of 13 from the field. Teague helped Kentucky win their 8th national championship.
Teague's family includes his mother Carol, his father Shawn, and his brother Jeff, the starting point guard of the Atlanta Hawks. Shawn played for Norm Stewart at the University of Missouri before transferring to Boston University, where he finished his career playing for Rick Pitino; he, like both sons, was an Indiana All-Star following his senior season of high school basketball.
