Gonzaga reaches out to Towson transfer Zane Martin

The sophomore would sit a year and have two remaining years of eligibility.

Sophomore guard Zane Martin will no longer play at Towson, and the Gonzaga Bulldogs have come a calling.

Martin averaged 19.8 points per game for Towson last year. As with any transfer who scores that much, the list of schools who have reached out will only get longer and longer. The 6’4 point guard is a shooter and then some, taking nearly 35 percent of Towson’s shots last season.

If he arrived at Gonzaga, Martin would sit out the 2018-19 season. That would give the Zags a potential starting backcourt of Martin and Zach Norvell, with some slightly experienced backups in Joel Ayayi and Greg Foster Jr., as well as some freshman finding their collegiate legs in Anton Watson and Brock Ravet.

The Zags will have to make a hard sell. Martin hails from Philadelphia, and well, Spokane is quite a long distance away. Gonzaga can, however, promise some dedicated minutes for Martin, since Josh Perkins will graduate.
