To say Arizona State’s success with Remy Martin over the two seasons has been lackluster is an understatement. The Sun Devils have had an immense amount of pre-season hype, only to falter and make Bobby Hurley’s seat even warmer.
Martin’s play has only gotten better, with averaging 19.1 points per game the past two seasons. Martin is a decent three-point shooter and can facilitate the ball at a high rate, with 3.9 assists per game in his career.
The super senior is a two-time Pac-12 First-Team and was named Co-Sixth Man of the Year in 2017-2018 as a freshman.
Martin has gotten experience playing against the Jayhawks, more so as an underclassman. Martin dropped a season-high 21 points and shot 8-11 from the field in an upset win in Lawrence, as a freshman.
Although not stuffing the stats as much, Martin was a solid part of the Sun Devils’ second consecutive win the following year, with a 10 point, four rebounds, four-assist performance to defeat the then-No.1 and undefeated Jayhawks.
Now with Martin putting on the blue and red, he has a chance to join a program with a legit chance at a conference championship and deep tournament run. He also has a chance to be the alpha dog and a contender to win Big 12 Player of the Year. Here are a few reasons why Martin should be the heavy favorite to take the hardware in March.
