Zane Martin, whose incoming transfer from Towson to the University of New Mexico men’s basketball program has been previously reported, was confirmed on Friday by UNM.
Martin, who led Towson with a team-best 19.8 points per game last season, must sit out the upcoming season and is eligible in 2019-20 with two years of eligibility remaining.
“Zane had some requirements to finish up at Towson. Those have just been completed and he has been officially admitted to UNM,” said UNM coach Paul Weir. “We look forward to helping him develop for the 2019-20 season.”
Martin was named MVP of the Basketball Hall of Fame Belfast Classic and earned All-CAA and NABC All-District 10 Second Team honors. He scored in double figures in 30 of the Tigers’ 32 games last season and averaged 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
He then declared for the NBA draft, but did not hire an agent, which allowed him to withdraw and retain eligibliity.
- Ralph Davis, who has spent nine years at New Mexico Military Institute, including the last four as head coach, has joined the UNM men as video coordinator.

“As a coach in this state for the last nine years, I admire the tradition and excitement that surrounds Lobo basketball. To now become a part of it is truly a blessing,” Davis said in a statement provided by UNM.
UNM said that Davis helped recruit 31 players at NMMI who went on to play at four-year schools, including 16 who moved into the Division I ranks.
