Justin Martin: Former Xavier University forward says he will transfer to SMU

XU's loss becomes Cincinnati's loss, too

CINCINNATI - Former Xavier University forward Justin Martin is transferring to Southern Methodist, which means Xavier's loss becomes UC's loss, too.

SMU already looked like the favorite in the American Athletic Conference next season. And now Larry Brown has added an experienced shooting guard/small forward to his starting lineup.

The 6-6 Martin averaged 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds last season and made 50 3-pointers.

As a graduate student, Martin won't have to sit out a season after transferring.

On the other hand, Martin's departure left Xavier without its top two scorers from last season's NCAA tournament team.

Sophomore guard and leading scorer Semaj Christon (17 ppg) decided to go to the NBA.
