More on Martzloff

Two days after getting beat on a RazorSharks story by the local alt weekly, the Rochester (NY) Democrat and Chronicle has a story on the city's new ABA team, with a lot of it talking about Scott Martzloff, who played high school ball in the Rochester area before playing collegiately at Holy Cross.

Among the Martzloff tidbits:
Martzloff has Saturdays off, but he's plenty busy Monday through Friday as an assistant principal at Edison Tech.

The 7-foot-1 Martzloff was part of a terrific McQuaid team that featured sharp-shooting Greg Woodard (who went on to play at Villanova) and won the school's first state basketball title in 1988.

. . .

Martzloff, 35, went on to play Division I ball at Holy Cross after McQuaid and landed a tryout with the NBA's Detroit Pistons in 1992. He played in Hong Kong in 1994 and in Holland briefly the next year before deciding to focus on his teaching career.

Now married with two daughters-- and a son on the way in January -- the Henrietta native has been an administrator administrator at Edison since 2001.

He caught the basketball bug again this past summer and played for a team in the Los Angeles Summer Pro League. He tried out for the RazorSharks in September and signed a contract last week.

"I'm really excited about it," says Martzloff, who is down to 254 pounds after topping the scales at 296 a year ago. "I wish they had something like this quite a while ago."

Martzloff expects the Edison students to "razz" him if he makes a bad play tonight.

"I also think they'll be really excited about it," he says.
