Filipino-American Remy Martin ends his NCAA career for Arizona State as one of the Sun Devils' all-time leaders in several departments

Filipino-American Remy Martin has declared for the NBA Draft after ending his NCAA Division 1 stint with the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Martin spent 4 years at Arizona State, eventually becoming one of the Sun Devils’ all-time leaders in several departments.

“I’ll be pursuing my NBA dreams,” Martin said in a video posted on the Sun Devils’ social media accounts.

The 22-year-old guard declared for the NBA Draft last year but withdrew to return to Arizona State.

In his senior year, Martin averaged 19.1 points on a 43% clip to go with 3.7 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.2 steals for the Sun Devils, who racked up a 7-10 record in the Pac-12 conference.

With his fine play, Martin earned a selection to the First Team All-Pac-12 for the second straight year along with top draft prospect Evan Mobley of the University of Southern California.

Arizona State awarded Martin the Bill Kajikawa Award – given to graduating student-athletes – for his contributions to the school.

Martin finished his Sun Devils career with an all-time ranking of 2nd in assists (466), 6th in points (1,754), and 8th in steals (151). – Rappler.com
