Report: Bryant guard Nisre Zouzoua to transfer

Zouzoua and his 20 points per game will be shipping out of Smithfield

NCAA Basketball: Bryant at Georgetown Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Bryant sophomore guard Nisre Zouzoua will transfer, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports/Fan Rag reported on Tuesday.

Zouzoua will presumably have to wait a season before becoming eligible to play for his next team.

He was voted a First Team All-Northeast Conference performer this past season after averaging 20.3 points per game and grabbing 4.2 rebounds. Zouzoua scored at least 20 points 17 times in 2016-17, including two games of 30-plus points. A scorer at 6-foot-2, he was the fulcrum of Bryant’s offense, taking a whopping 26.5 percent of all Bulldog field goal attempts.

Zouzoua has been a stud in the Northeast Conference in both his seasons at Bryant. He was an All-Rookie team selection in his freshman campaign after scoring 12.8 points per game, good for eighth in the conference, before leading the NEC in scoring in his sophomore campaign.

Bryant went just 12-20 in 2016-17 and bowed out to Saint Francis PA in the first round of the NEC Tournament.
