Sophomore transfer eligible to play in 2019-20

Milwaukee –
The Marquette University men’s basketball team has added transfer guard Koby McEwen (Toronto, Canada/Utah State) to the program, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Monday afternoon

McEwen, a 6-4, 200-pounder, will arrive on campus this summer and have two seasons of eligibility after sitting out the 2018-19 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules.

The Toronto, Canada, native was named Third Team All-Mountain West as a sophomore in 2017-18 and also claimed a spot on the NABC All-District 17 Second Team squad. He chipped in 15.6 points per game and his 5.4 rebounds per contest was the best mark on the roster. He started in each of his 30 appearances and reached double figures in scoring on 22 occasions (11 games of 20-or-more points).

McEwen was tabbed the Mountain West Freshman of the Year in 2016-17 and also earned a nod to the league’s honorable mention all-conference team. He finished second on the squad in scoring with 14.8 points per game, the best mark by a freshman in school history. McEwen started 30-of-31 contests and his 158 total rebounds from the guard position were the second most on the team.

McEwen averaged 18.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game as a senior at Wasatch Academy and helped the program to a 29-4 record. He was an all-state honoree as a junior.
