31. Remy Martin Arizona State
Martin brings really good steadiness and leadership for Arizona State with a chip-on-his-shoulder mentality. While Martin is on the ball a lot he does a really good job of getting open without the basketball creating scoring opportunities. Furthermore, he brings good toughness and can get into the lane at times and finish at the rim when he’s in control. Additionally, control and consistency are really key for Martin to take the next step if he can show consistency he will be one of the best point guards in the country next season and have Arizona State as a top 10 team in the country. His ability to create off the dribble and pull up with major confidence is a really good aspect of his game. His playmaking and shot hunting ability are what make Martin the player he is. Now, defensively, he’s undersized but brings really good effort and tenacity. He can get up in guys and cause some havoc at times. Arizona State will be the PAC-12 favorites with Martin leading the way next season.
