Martin Reinstated to Basketball Program

MANHATTAN, Kan. Senior forward Cartier Martin has been reinstated to the Kansas State men’s basketball team, Director of Athletics Tim Weiser announced on Friday.


“Cartier has successfully completed the terms of his suspension and is permitted to participate in all team activities,” Weiser said.


Martin was suspended from the program on May 26 for violating the department’s student-athlete code of conduct.


A preseason All-Big 12 selection by the league coaches, Martin paced the team in nearly every statistical category in 2005-06, including scoring (18.0 ppg.), rebounding (6.6 rpg.), field goals (161), 3-point field goals (50), free throws (132), free throw shooting (84.1) and minutes (32.8 mpg.).  He concluded the season by earning second team All-Big 12 honors from both the league coaches and The Associated Press.  Martin enters the 2006-07 season just 53 points shy of 1,000 for his career.


“We are pleased Cartier has successfully met the conditions for his return to the program,” said head coach Bob Huggins.  “We look forward to him having another outstanding season.”
