Dunn-Martin stepped up for Duquesne this past season following the departure of Sincere Carry and provided leadership for a very young team. Despite being a natural shooting guard, Dunn-Martin moved over and split time at point guard with freshman Tyson Acuff.
In 18 games, Dunn-Martin averaged 10.2 points, 3.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting 34.9% from the field and 30.4% from 3-point range.
Duquesne is looking to add a veteran point guard through the transfer portal so it’s likely Dunn-Martin moves back to his normal position.
It still remains to be seen whether forward Marcus Weathers and Mike Hughes return. Though the players have an extra season of NCAA eligibility, the decision to return also needs to be a mutual one from a player and coaches standpoint.
