Martin never returned to the lineup following his injury, but the Tigers were still able to defeat American Athletic Conference foe Houston, ranked No. 23 in the country, by a score of 91-85 at FedExForum. Martin underwent an MRI Friday and it revealed he has a broken left foot.

The injury is a big blow for Memphis (17-11, 8-7 American), which is arguably playing its best basketball of the season right now. Martin is not only the Tigers’ leading scorer but the leading scorer in the AAC averaging 18.9 points per game. Martin will have surgery Tuesday, Feb. 27, and is expected to be out four to six months.

The Tigers have three regular-season games left: Sunday at UConn, followed by home games March 1 against USF and March 4 against East Carolina. The conference tournament will be held March 8-11 in Orlando, Florida.

Martin had missed only one game this season, sitting out the 70-67 win at SMU with a hip injury. He returned last weekend at Tulane and led the Tigers with 22 points in a 68-63 victory.

In addition to scoring, Martin ranked first in steals (61) and seventh in assists (3.8 average) in the AAC.
