At UCF, Martone posted a double-double with ten kills and ten blocks, hitting .333 in the five set win. Then on Sunday at UTEP, she again had a stellar outing with 13 kills - tying for the match-high - and added six blocks, two assists and one dig in the sweep of the Miners.

Martone his having an outstanding rookie campaign in 2010, starting all 27 matches and compiling 226 kills and 58 total blocks. A native of Baton Rouge, Martone ranks third on the team in kills, total attacks and points, while sitting in a tie for second on the squad in blocks.

The Green Wave will return to action this weekend with a pair of matches at Fogelman Arena. Tulane will host Memphis on Friday evening starting at 7:00 and then entertain UAB on Sunday at 1:00.
