Marquette adds UNC Asheville transfer guard Andrew Rowsey


Andrew Rowsey, a UNC Asheville transfer guard, announced he had committed to Marquette on Sunday afternoon via Twitter.

The 5-foot-10 guard was one of the top scorers in his two seasons in the Big South Conference. He will have two years of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Rowsey was also considering Cincinnati and N.C. State.

Rowsey joins Henry Ellenson, Traci Carter, Haanif Cheatham, Matt Heldt and Sacar Anim in Marquette’s incoming recruiting class.

Rowsey averaged 19.7 points per game in 63 appearances with the Bulldogs. He also shot better than 38 percent from three in both seasons.

He announced he would transfer on April 16.
