Martin Begins Pro Career in Portugal

ORLANDO ( – Following her tenure at UCF, Sianni Martin has signed on to begin her professional basketball career overseas.
Martin will suit up for Basquete Clube De Barcelos in Portugal.

The Philadelphia, Pa., native was the third-leading scorer for the Knights in 2019-20, averaging 9.1 points per game. She tallied 15 double-digit performances, including a season-best 22 points against then No. 11 UCLA.
Martin opened the 2019-20 season draining a career-best five three-pointers against Pitt. She shot 83.3 percent from beyond the arc, which ranks third on UCF's single game chart. The guard filled the stat sheet in UCF's win over Tulsa on Feb. 5., just missing her first career double-double but matching her career high with nine rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the floor en route to 17 points.
She scored the 1000th point of her career with one minute remaining in the third quarter of the regular season finale against Wichita State, draining a three-pointer to push her over the mark.
Martin appeared in 42 contests during her two-year tenure with the Black and Gold. She played in all 30 games during her redshirt senior campaign, earning the starting nod five times.

The Basquete Clube D Barcelos season tips off Sept. 24.
