Former N.C. State Point Guard Tyler Lewis to Butler
Transferring N.C. State point guard Tyler Lewis is headed to Butler after visiting the Indiana school this past week.
“I love the coaches and players,” the 5-foot-11 Lewis told SNY.tv. “I felt like it was home and a place where I can really succeed.’
A 2012 McDonald’s All-American, Lewis averaged 4.4 points and 3.8 assists this past season at N.C. State, setting a school record and finishing second in the ACC with a 3.55:1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
He will sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules and suit up in 2015-16.
