NASHVILLE, Tn — Navarro College and Tennessee State University graduate Wayne Martin signed his first contract to play professional basketball with Prishtina BC in the Kosovo-SuperLeague.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud of an individual than I am of Wayne Martin,” TSU head coach Dana Ford said. “He’s a college graduate of Tennessee State University and now he’s a professional basketball player. All the credit belongs to Wayne and his mom and their willingness to allow us to help him become who he is today.”
Martin starred for the Tigers for the last two seasons, helping lead TSU to back-to-back winning seasons. After transferring to TSU from Navarro College, the 6-foot-7 forward put up 12.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game in his two seasons in Nashville.
“Coach (Dana) Ford got me ready for the real world and for professional basketball,” Martin said.
