nd-logo6’8” Junior Scott Martin will miss the entire 2009-10 season.3623212 The Purdue transfer tore his ACL in his left knee during a preseason team workout this past Thursday.

Martin is expected to make a full recovery for the 2010-11 season said Mike Brey ND head coach:

“I am very dissappointed for Scott… We are expecting him to make a full recovery and he will use this year to rehabilitate his knee in preparation for the 2010-11 season.”

imagesThis is a tough loss for for the Irish.  After a very disappointing year last year, Notre Dame was looking to have an up year this year, especially with the return of Luke Harangody.  Now with Martin out additional pressure will be put on Harangody, which as we saw last year, hurt the Irish.  Notre Dame will be forced to turn to some veterans who have gotten much playing time in their careers; Tim Abromaitis and Carelton Scott.  Hopefully for the Irsih, they will be able to pick up the slack, but there is no doubt that this is a huge blow for Notre Dame.  In any regard, we hope Scott Martin makes a full recovery, and we look forward to seeing him out on the floor next year.
