Texas Southern’s Zach Lofton to transfer


Texas Southern’s leading scorer will seek a transfer, according to a report on Monday night.

Zach Lofton, who led the Tigers with 16.8 points per game, will look to complete his collegiate career elsewhere, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN. The 6-foot-3 guard, who began his career at Illinois State, is eligible immediately. Two weeks ago he announced that he’d enter the NBA Draft without an agent.

In his final appearance with the Tigers, he recorded nine points, four rebounds and two assists in a 103-64 loss to eventual national champion North Carolina in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
