Notre Dame forward Scott Martin has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and will play again for the Irish next season.
Martin, who averaged 9.5 points last season as the Irish went 22-12, transferred to Notre Dame in June of 2008 following his freshman year at Purdue. After sitting out the 2008-09 season as a transfer, Martin missed the entire 2009-10 season with a torn knee ligament.
Martin has started all 66 games he has played for the Irish the last two seasons and averaged 9.6 points and 5.2 rebounds. He has a degree in history and computer applications and is currently enrolled in graduate school. The NCAA earlier rejected a sixth season for Notre Dame's Tim Abromaitis.

The NCAA granted Irish forward Scott Martin a sixth-year of eligibility for the upcoming basketball season. With the captain’s return, Notre Dame’s starting lineup from last winter remains intact and (at least) a quartet of newcomers joining the fray.
Notre Dame was unable to get a sixth year of eligibility out of the NCAA for their oft-injured star Tim Abromaitis, but they were able to get the same situation approved for forward Scott Martin (Valparaiso, Ind.). The Purdue transfer will return to play for the Irish in 2012-13.

When we last blogged about Alex Dragicevich he was denying reports that he had committed to Boston College. Now his transfer is public and official. All my original comments on his transfer still hold. It's a good sign to get a transfer from Notre Dame and he has the type of game to thrive under Donahue. The bad news is that he cannot play next year and makes our class of 2015...
One of my favorite pastimes is setting imaginary odds on random, hypothetical situations. It’s not healthy, but I do this for almost everything, especially weddings and Notre Dame football. Why those two in particular? Both are painfully predictable and otherwise intolerable. I mean, have you ever truly dedicated a Saturday to watching a Notre Dame game? At least people clap...
A year ago John Wolford had enough interest in Notre Dame to spend three days at the Irish summer camp. Wednesday, Wolford got a in-school visit from the Irish. Will he return to camp this summer? IrishEyes.com has the latest.
