FAIRMONT, W.Va. -- Head men’s basketball coach Jerrod Calhoun has announced the addition of Will Martinez, a junior college transfer from Malcolm X College, for the 2014-15 season. Martinez, who averaged 21.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists last season, will have two years of eligibility at Fairmont State.
Martinez will give the Falcons an experienced scoring threat after shooting 46 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the arc last season at Malcolm X. In 28 games last season, Martinez scored 20-points or more 18 times and had five 30-point performances.
Martinez is the seventh member of Fairmont State’s recruiting class that includes three Division I or junior college transfers and four incoming freshman.
The Falcons will open the 2014-15 season on Saturday, November 8 with an exhibition game at the University of Cincinnati. The regular season will begin the following weekend with the second-annual Joe Retton Classic on November 14-15.
