Marcus Hatten (born December 13, 1980) is an American professional basketball player who plays for Mitteldeutscher BC of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL).

Early career[edit]

Hatten attended Mergenthaler Vocational Technical Senior High School. From there he went to Tallahassee Community College where he averaged about 20 points per game between his freshman and sophomore seasons.

After this, he transferred to Big East power, St. John's University in New York City to be a communications major. He was the second Tallahassee Community College star to go to St. John's, as Bootsy Thornton (also of Baltimore) took the same route to St. John's. Under coach Mike Jarvis, he was an NIT champion and MVP, two time All–Big East first team selection and averaged 21.2 points per game.

Professional career[edit]

He was not drafted in the NBA Draft and played in the CBA before a brief stint with the Los Angeles Clippers. Then he played in Poland and Spain before being signed by the Denver Nuggets. However, he went to play in Greece. In the 2005–06 season, he averaged 22.7 points per game playing with Hapoel Tel Aviv, during that same year Hatten was accused during the end of the season of sexual abuse in a local 19 years old woman[1] alongside Hapoel Jerusalem's Horace Jenkins, Roger Mason Jr. and Mario Austin, the accusation dropped later that year. In the following season he played at Elitzur Ashkelon. He led the Israeli League in scoring per game with 23.23 points and also scored the most points in one game in that season with 49 against Hapoel Jerusalem. In the 2007–08 season, he arrived in Italy and he played in Scafati Basket. At the beginning of the 2009–10 season, a new contract was inked for U.C.C. Casalpusterlengo, an Italian Legadue team. Then he went to Dexia Mons-Hainaut.

On July 27, 2015, he signed with BG Göttingen.[2] His contract was terminated two weeks later when he failed a physical as a result of a knee injury.[3]

On November 6, 2015, he returned to Mitteldeutscher BC, signing a two-year deal.[4]
