MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis guard Jeremiah Martin will miss four to six weeks as the Tigers' leading scorer last season recovers from hernia surgery.

Memphis begins preseason practice in late September and opens the season Nov. 6 against Tennessee Tech.

School officials announced Wednesday that Martin underwent surgery Monday to repair a hernia.

Martin averaged 18.9 points per game to rank second in the American Athletic Conference last season. The 6-foot-3 guard missed seven games because of injury, including a broken left foot that ended his season in late February.

Martin also led Memphis in assists (3.8), steals (61) and 3-pointers (51). He earned second-team all-American Athletic Conference honors.
