Press Release from Arkansas State Athletics
Arkansas State sophomore forward Peyton Martin has been named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week after a pair of 20-point performances over the past week.
Martin averaged 23.5 and 8.5 rebounds over the Red Wolves’ contests against Memphis and UT Martin. She began the week by scoring a then career-high 20 points as the Red Wolves outscored the Tigers 29-14 in the fourth quarter. Martin helped lead the way in the final frame with 11 points.
Later in the week the Pine Bluff, Ark., native notched her first career double-double with a 27-point, 12-rebound afternoon against the Skyhawks. The 27 points and 12 rebounds were both career-highs for Martin, who now leads A-State on the season in scoring (19.0 ppg) and ranks second in rebounding (6.7 rpg).
A-State takes will host Louisiana Tech Tuesday, Nov. 20 at First National Bank Arena, followed by a road trip to College Station, Texas on Friday, Nov. 23 to take Texas A&M. Tip-off against the Aggies is set for 4 p.m. and the game will air on the SEC+ Network.
