The brightest light in Canisius' future will soon be appearing at the end of a different tunnel.
The Golden Griffins announced today that Zach Lewis, their sophomore shooting guard and third team all-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference honoree, will transfer upon completion of the Spring 2015 semester. Along with graduating seniors Josiah Heath and Jeremiah Williams, Canisius must now replace a trio that accounted for nearly 47 percent of its total offense.
"We are disappointed to learn that Zach wants to transfer from Canisius," head coach Jim Baron said in a release issued by the college. "He has been a hard worker and a good teammate, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors."
A native of Windsor, Connecticut, Lewis was the Griffs' leading scorer this past season, averaging 12.5 points per game on a team that competed in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament for the third consecutive season, reaching the quarterfinals before being eliminated by NJIT. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
More information on Zach Lewis' transfer will be posted as it becomes available.
