Tiger freshman Martin scores ICCAC honor

The Tigers women’s basketball team is 2-for-2 when it comes to Iowa Community College Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

One week after MCC freshman Jasmine Howe earned ICCAC Offensive Player of the Week, fellow Tiger freshman Jamerka Martin was pegged with the same honor.

Martin’s team-high 16 points and 4-for-6 performance from behind the 3-point line helped the Tigers cruise to a 77-50 win over the Grand View University junior varsity. It also secured MCC with a 2-0 start to the young season.

Martin, a Milwaukee, Wis., native, tallied 13 of her 16 points and three of her four triples in the second half of the victory. Through two games this year, Martin has canned six 3-pointers and is shooting 54 percent from long range.
