Jeff Martin Jr. has become a fan and player favorite
If you left Murray State’s win over Tennessee Tech early, you probably missed Racer Nation’s favorite player put points on the board.
Jeff Martin Jr., a walkon and son of Murray State’s all-time leading scorer Jeff Martin, has become a fan favorite in his limited time on the court. As the Racers led by 18 with under a minute to play, Martin hit a three in the corner getting loudest reaction all night from the crowd.
Marin has only scored 12 points in his career, compared to his father, who scored 2,484 points. It is a given that when he does get in games, he will probably try to shoot the ball.
That is exactly what is teammates want to see, and so does his head coach. Only Steve Prohm wants him to play defense as well.
