''I'm blessed to have the opportunity to coach Remy Martin for one more season,'' Sun Devils coach Bobby Hurley said in a statement Sunday. ''Remy will be one of the best players in college basketball this year and will be on a mission to lead Arizona State basketball in its pursuit of championships.''

A 6-foot guard, Martin is the Pac-12's leading returning scorer after averaging 19.1 points in 2019-20. He also averaged 4.1 assists per game and helped put the Sun Devils in position to reach the NCAA Tournament for the third straight year before the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Martin's return should put Arizona State among the favorites to win the Pac-12 next season.

Martin joins fellow guard Alonzo Verge Jr. in returning to the Sun Devils after testing the NBA waters. Big man Romello White declared for the draft and later entered the transfer portal.

Hurley has signed one of the program's best recruiting classes for next season, headed by five-star guard Josh Christopher.
