Notre Dame's Scott Martin prepares to play former team

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Notre Dame guard Scott Martin, a former Purdue player, will face the Boilermakers Saturday.

The No. 22 Notre Dame Fighting Irish are preparing to play the Purdue Boilermakers at 4:30 p.m. ET Saturday. Senior guard Scott Martin, who played one season with the Boilermakers before transferring to Notre Dame, told Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune that playing his former team doesn't give him any extra motivation.

"I don't see it as anything different than us going down there and playing (Indiana) last year," Martin told the Tribune in advance of the Crossroads Classic doubleheader at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. "I don't really know any of the guys on the team now. It's not like I'm going back and playing with a bunch of guys I played with before."

Martin is averaging 8.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He's shooting 44 percent from the field and 45 percent from three-point range.

Notre Dame has won six straight games. Purdue comes into the game at 4-5 this season, including a loss to Eastern Michigan of the Mid-American Conference in the Boilermaker's last game.
