Say It Ain’t So, Elmer

Razorback ExpatsSenior Analyst IJuly 25, 2008

It brings me no joy to report this, but the already-stocked Washington County prison all-star team just got a little more talented: former Hog hoopster Elmer Martin was has been sentenced to 15 years in the clink for a variety of drug-dealing charges, apparently involving cocaine and Ecstasy.

It’s a sad turn of events for Elmer. In addition to being a role player on the 1994 national championship team, he became a somewhat unlikely starter for the latter part of the 1995 season. After struggling with lineups throughout the year, Nolan found Elmer to be his good luck charm and rode that all the way to the finals (as a general Expats policy, we don’t speak of what happened then).

He later played with the Harlem Globetrotters for awhile before we lost track of him…obviously the ensuing years did not go well.

Where can I comment?
