Maryland men’s basketball has another new target on its radar, but this one wouldn’t be able to contribute until the 2019-20 season. Towson sophomore guard Zane Martin has received his release and will transfer, per Jeff Borzello, after recently pulling his name out of the NBA Draft.
The Terps are among several teams to express interest in Martin. With Kevin Huerter expected to leave after next season, if not now, Martin would be a plausible option to help replace some of the lost production.
In his second season at Towson, Martin vastly improved upon his first, upping his 5.5 points per game to a whopping 19.8. The 6’4, 205-pound guard has a thick frame that allows him to create his own shot. Martin is a volume shooter, taking almost 38 percent of the Tigers’ shots last season.
If the Terps are lucky, they’ll land a big, high-scoring guard capable of creating his own shot. One has to wonder, though, if his style of play will translate to the more physical Big Ten and if his one explosive season was indicative of more to come or if it will prove to be an outlier.
