Martin named Big East Scholar-Athlete of Year
Martin has helped DePaul to a 20-10 regular-season record and a 9-7 mark in BIG EAST play as the Blue Demons earned the No. 7 seed in the BIG EAST Championship presented by American Eagle Outfitters. She appeared in 21 regular-season games, missing nine due to a knee injury, and averaged a team-high 15.7 points per game. Despite being limited to just eight BIG EAST games, Martin was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team.
Martin was a unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team choice as a junior in 2011-12 as she led the conference and was ranked 25th nationally in scoring at 19.1 points per game. She was an Associated Press honorable mention all-America selection and was a midseason candidate for the Wade Trophy and Naismith Trophy as the top player in the nation. She has helped DePaul to three NCAA Championship appearances.
Additionally, Martin carries a 3.595 grade-point average as a marketing major. She has been named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team in each of her first three years and was recognized as a Divsion I-AAA Athletic Directors Association Scholar-Athlete in 2012.
Martin's community service efforts include volunteer work with a number of campus and local ventures, including the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen, the Kentucky Community Centers and Children of the Americas.
The American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year award is one of a number of scholarships presented by the BIG EAST Conference and American Eagle Outfitters during the 2012-13 academic year. Thirty student-athletes (one male and one female from each of the BIG EAST's 15 member institutions) will be named as the winners of the American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Institutional Scholar-Athlete Scholarships. The conference also names male and female American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Basketball Scholar-Athletes of the Year and an American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
The winners of the institutional, basketball and football awards are then eligible for the BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, which provides an additional postgraduate scholarship to one male and one female student-athlete.
