Javier
Martinez
Javier Martinez (201-F-93) was selected to the All-OVC second team by head coaches and sports information director. Martinez quite simply developed into one of the most complete frontcourt players in the OVC during his senior campaign. The forward from St. Croix, Virgin Islands ranks fifth in the country with a .677 field goal percentage while also compiling 8.6 rebounds per game - the third-highest total in the league. He was even better against OVC opponents, as he averaged a double-double of 14.7 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. In conference play, his rebounding total led the league while also ranking atop the OVC in field goal percentage (.727, 101-for-139) and free throw percentage (.917, 33-of-36).
Ten of Martinez's 12 double-doubles occurred in OVC play, which ranked as the most in the league. The 6-7, 210-pound phenom became the first player in UT Martin's Division-I era (since 1992) to record a 20/20 game, hauling in 22 points and a career-best 21 rebounds at Tennessee Tech on Feb. 1. He also accumulated a career-high 27 points (on 12-of-16 shooting) in only 26 minutes in a home win against Bethune-Cookman on Dec. 17 and was named the adidas OVC Player of the Week on Feb. 6.
Martinez helped the Skyhawks claim their second straight OVC West division championship and achieve a 20-win season for the third season in a row, a feat that had never been done at UT Martin. The Skyhawks earned the No. 2 seed in this week's OVC Basketball Championships and will play their first game in the tournament semifinals on Friday, March 3 at 9 p.m (ESPNU).

With preseason coming to end, the uncertainty of the regular season is looming overhead. If nothing else, Hawks fans can be certain in one thing: John Collins(208-F-97, college: Wake Forest) is the real deal. Drafted 19th overall in June, Collins has been on a mission ever since to show the NBA that he went too low. As soon as the Atlanta Hawks drafted him, Hawks fans poured over his film from his time at Wake Forest, and that's when the excitement ensued. Then he got his first NBA expe...   [read more]

Roster cuts ahead for Jazz, with Royce O'Neale, Joel Bolomboy looking for last spot - 4 days ago
For a few players on the Utah Jazz training camp roster, it could be a tough weekend. By Monday, the Jazz must have their roster whittled down to 15, plus two players on two-way contracts. As of Friday, the team had 19 on its roster, with Eric Griffin and Nate Wolters on two-way deals. That means two players will likely be cut over the weekend. It's expected that the Jazz will waive Nazareth Mitrou-Long, a guard out of Iowa State who played light minutes this preseason. The Tribune has le...   [read more]

The Wolves announced they have waived three players: Amile Jefferson, Melo Trimble, and yesterday's signing Shawne Williams.

Jefferson and Trimble were both signed this summer as undrafted rookie free agents. Jefferson a power forward from Duke, was on the Wolves summer league team and earned a camp invite. He's gotten a long look, and will have a chance to impress in the...   [read more]
