HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Huntington University head coach Ty Platt continues to add depth at the guard spot with the signing of Crispus Attucks point guard Zac Owens.

After spending two years as a varsity starter at Anderson High School, the 5-11 floor general sat out his junior year as a transfer in order to spend his final season at Crispus Attucks. He helped guide the Tigers to a 2017 3A State Championship and a Pioneer Conference championship by averaging 11.3 points, 3.8 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per night.

As an underclassman at Anderson, Owens poured in 9.2 points to go along with 4.2 steals and 3.0 assists per game as a freshman before posting 16 points and 4.6 assists per outing as a sophomore.

“We are super excited to be adding Zac to our Forester basketball team,” said Platt. “He is a very talented, quick combo guard that can handle the ball, can get to the rim and score as well as knock down the outside shot. He has a team-first mentality and has leadership qualities that make him a perfect fit for us. Zac and his teammates had a great season and we think those successes will lead to big things for us here at HU.

“Zac is a high character young man and an excellent student. He will be a great representative of Forester basketball both on and off the court. He is someone we have high expectations for and we are confident he will have a tremendous career.”

Zac is the son of Yolanda Wilkins of Indianapolis, Ind.
