Kansas State’s Shaelyn Martin is a standout both on the court and in the classroom, and she was named the Big 12 Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year Thursday.
The senior kinesiology major made the 2018 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America Second Team this year, and holds a 4.0 GPA. She is a three-time Academic All-Big 12 member.
In 2018, she averaged 5.7 assists, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Martin is only the fourth player in Kansas State women’s basketball history to have 100 assists in at least three seasons, and finished her career in the program’s Top 10 in assists (fifth), rebounds (tenth) and steals (eighth). She also owns the school record for charges drawn in a career, with 95.
Martin is the third Kansas State player to win this award, after Brittany Chambers in 2013 and Kindred Wesemann in 2016.
