Liz Martino is transferring from the Rutgers women’s basketball program, news breaking on Thursday that the guard is headed to Jackson State.
A sophomore, Martino left the team midseason. In 15 games, she averaged nine minutes played and 2.2 points per game.
She came to Rutgers from Riverdale Baptist (Lanham, MD) where she was a three-star recruit and a top 75 player in the nation.
Rutgers had a difficult 2021-22 season under interim head coach Timothy Eatman, finishing the season 11-20. They did win their opening-round game of the Big Ten Tournament against Penn State before losing to Indiana in the second round.

Last year as a freshman, Martino seemed destined for a big role with the program, averaging 9.8 minutes per game and 3.2 points per game.
The women’s basketball program is going under a rather seismic change with head coach C. Vivian Stringer. The hall of fame head coach is one of the most successful coaches in college basketball history and turned Rutgers into a perennial NCAA Tournament team.
