Kansas State received a big boost when forward Cartier Martin was reinstated to the basketball team on Friday.

"Cartier has successfully completed the terms of his suspension and is permitted to participate in all team activities," director of athletics Tim Weiser said.

Martin had been suspended May 26 for violating the school's student-athlete code of conduct.

Martin, who was a preseason All-Big 12 selection, led the team in most statistics last season. He was tops in scoring (18.0 points a game), rebounding (6.6 a game), field goals (161), 3-point field goals (50), free throws (132), free throw shooting (84.1) and minutes (32.8 a game).

He was a second team all-Big 12 pick last season.

Kansas State went 15-13 last season, including 6-10 in the conference.

The Wildcats, under first-year coach Bob Huggins, began practice Friday.
