Martin averaged 2.5 blocks per game overall this season and 2. 4 in conference play, putting him atop the league leaders for the third straight season. The 2.5 blocks per game is 18th best in the country.
Martin finished his season with 65 blocked shots, ranking him sixth in program history for most blocks in a season.
