Canisius sophomore guard and leading scorer will transfer

0 Comments

Canisius took a big hit to its future plans on Monday as the school announced that sophomore guard Zach Lewis plans on transferring.

The 6-foot-3 Lewis was an All-MAAC third-team selection and he led the team with 12.5 points per game on the season.

“We are disappointed to learn that Zach wants to transfer from Canisius,” Baron said. “He has been a hard worker and a good teammate, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

Lewis also averaged 3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Golden Griffins. While Lewis put up decent numbers across the board, he was a high-volume shooter with poor percentages from the field. Lewis shot 33 percent from the field and 31 percent from 3-point range — both numbers down from his freshman year — as a sophomore.

A native of Windor, CT, Lewis did a postgrad year at Fishburne Military School before committing to Canisius.
