PFEIFER ON BROTHERS:
“Like several of
our returning players this will be the first time Martin has played in the
same program for back to back seasons. On top of that we didn’t have him in
a uniform until Christmas last season. The simple fact he is a returner and
ready to play right away are both huge bonuses. When he gets the ball next
to the rim he is as crafty a scorer as we have had. He is one of those
players who has the knack of putting the ball in the basket. With that he
is a good rebounder and passer. All these ingredients earned him
All-American honors last season for a reason.”
