CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Because of this, Remy Martin left Arizona State to join Kansas.
To advance to the NCAA tournament’s second round during March Madness. The No. 1 Jayhawks defeated No. 4 Providence 66-61 to move to the Elite 8 of the Midwest Region at United Center behind a 23-point, seven-rebound performance from Martin.
At the End of December, Martin Injured his Right Knee, but he now says he Feels Better.
It was “kind of hard for [Coach Bill Self] to read but as soon as I got healed and he understood that I was healthy, he started to trust me,” Martin said. Martin said he didn’t like to mention that he was hurt or anything. “And that, in the end, was it. I’ll always be me… Now that I’m back to full health, I’m able to contribute to the team’s success.”
Noah Horchler’s two three-pointers with 7:17 left in the game sparked a Providence comeback and a 2-2 tie. Aside from the two free throws, the Friars had a terrible 2-20 from the three-point line.
Providence’s aspirations of making the Elite Eight for the first time since 1997 were dashed by a dismal shooting performance.

On Sunday, No. 1 Kansas will take on No. 10 Miami, which defeated No. 11 Iowa State 70-56 to reach the Final Four.
After defending champion Baylor, Gonzaga, and Arizona were eliminated, the Jayhawks became the lone remaining #1 seed. At this point, the team is just one win away from the Finals.
In Martin’s words, “It means the world to me, this is why I came here.” Why not go the distance while we’re right here?. Thanks for reading our article. Continue raeding and have a good day.
