Martin was recently suspended from the west Virginia women's basketball team just to weeks ago prior to the team embarking on a trip to Europe.

In the attached article it claims that Martin and an accomplice assaulted one of the Martin's former girlfriends. Actions associated with the assault include choking, hair pulling, punching, and pushing the girl into a glass door.[/i]

The article also says she was arrested last season for possession of a controlled substance and held out of one game for that.

It makes me sad to see young women who worked so hard to get to D-I basketball and then throw further opportunities away on stupid **** like this.

It makes me sad that they only held a troubled young woman out of one game after a drug bust.

This girl needs some *serious* help before she ends up in prison or worse.

It may already be too late.

Just a few years ago I saw a girl in highs school with a top-level future in basketball throw it away via behavior issues. She will probably never even make it to a college team. There are more than likely much more cases that we do not even hear off just like this. Once a persons life starts on a downward spiral it often takes a drastic event to turn things around. More often than not, that sort of drasic event usually will also ruin any chance they might have had.

Could one “worse” possibility be landing yourself a roster spot on the Sparks?

At the risk of getting a lot of flak from the anti-Chamique folks, I will just point out that Chamique Holdsclaw has completely turned her life around since she was properly diagnosed and placed on the correct medication for her bipolar disorder, and has become a powerful force speaking out on college campuses and working with sports teams on mental health issues. She was a VA Tech and UVA fairly recently, and I'm hoping for a visit to JMU one of these days.

I thought of Chamique when I heard Liz Cambage recently urge that a mental health professional be available to each team. Who knows if that would have helped Chamique much earlier.

However, I'm not certain that all of these cases we're hearing about have anything to do with mental illness rather than just stupidity and bad behavior.

At a certain level, anyone who behaves this way has "mental problems" -- just as any mass murderer, by definition, is mentally ill.
