Lion of the Week
Nate Martin (#5) is a freshman guard on the Emerson Men’s Basketball team.
Martin played the hero in Saturday’s 73-70 win over WPI when he connected for the game winning triple, marking the first time Emerson has beaten every team in the NEWMAC. With one second on the shot clock and 2.9 seconds left in regulation, Martin took the three pointer and sank the shot to break a 70-70 tie. After sinking the game-winner, the freshman stole the inbound pass and dribbled out the clock to ice the win for the Lions.
Martin hails from Great Falls, Va.
