Martin declined to speak with Outside the Lines. But he spent three hours with HonorTheCall veering between confrontation and contrition, seemingly unsure how far to take either. One minute he was typing, “I messed up by not being completely transparent”; the next, he was offering what seemed to Honor like an unseemly deal: “Would you like to do a video together on your channel? I’d love to hop on.” When all that went nowhere, Martin suggested that he’d been slandered. “And it can be prosecuted.”
Before long, Honor posted excerpts of the chat transcript. (Martin had thought it was going to be confidential.) Honor would make several videos on the subject, but once the rush wore off, the programmer began feeling uneasy.
He was a family man trying to balance a day job at an IT company with a nighttime hobby as a crusader. How long could he keep trying to be an amateur sleuth, especially when no one with a real law enforcement job seemed interested in the new sites that were opening in tax havens like Antigua or in untraceable locations in Russia or China? His unease grew when someone posted a message on his YouTube channel that reminded him why he stayed anonymous.
The Wildcats start three freshmen. Two of them, Rawle Alkins and Kobi Simmons, have undoubtedly seen their minutes spike thanks to the ongoing recently explained absence of sophomore guard Allonzo Trier, and it is a story unto itself that Miller’s team has remained this effective without its breakout leading scorer of a season ago, who’s still missing after 19 games.
He leads the Wildcats in points (17) and rebounds (7.4) per game. He takes 25 percent of his team’s available shots while on the floor. His shooting splits — around 55 percent from 2 and 83 percent from the stripe — have combined with a super-low turnover rate to make him one of the nation’s 15-or-so most efficient all-around offensive weapons.
