Tyrese Martin ineligible for UConn opener

Junior Tyrese Martin's UConn debut was put on hold after he was declared ineligible for the men's basketball season opener tonight against Central Connecticut State University at Gampel Pavilion.

He's serving a one game NCAA penalty for participating in an unsanctioned summer league.

The school announced the news this afternoon.

A 6-foot-6 guard, Martin is expected to be a key member of coach Dan Hurley's rotation. He spent the last two seasons at Rhode Island, averaging 12.8 points and 7.1 rebounds while starting all 30 games last season.
