Remy Martin joined a very short list of Arizona State Sun Devils on Wednesday. Martin was named an Associated Press preseason All-American, the only other Sun Devil with the same accolade was Ike Diogu in 2003.
Martin joins Iowa senior Luka Garza, Baylor senior Jared Butler, Oklahoma State freshman Cade Cunningham, Illinois junior Ayo Dosunmu and Gonzaga senior Corey Kispert on this year’s team.
Martin returns to Tempe after averaging 19.1 points, 4.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game. It’s easy to understand the hype behind Bobby Hurley’s team that the AP ranked 18th heading into the season. Martin, along with Alonzo Verge and the talented freshmen pair of Josh Christopher and Marcus Bagley, could make a lot of noise on the court this season.
