He shot a team leading 58.2 percent from the field and led the Bulls in offensive rebounding and blocks. Martin finished the season strong making 72.2 percent (26-for-36) of his shots in the last seven games of the season.

In November Martin posted career highs in points (24) and rebounds (10) in his first career double-double against Arkansas State.

With Martin's departure, Brian Gregory has two scholarships to fill for the 2018-19 season.
