USC’s leading scorer headed to Gonzaga

SPOKANE — Byron Wesley, who led the University of Southern California men’s basketball team in scoring and rebounding last season, will play his senior season at Gonzaga.
The Spokesman-Review reported Monday that the 6-foot-5 wing is expected to complete his degree this summer, making him eligible to play for the Zags in the 2014-15 season.
“The most important thing was the winning culture at Gonzaga,” Wesley told the Spokesman-Review newspaper in a phone interview. “They’ve been to the (NCAA) tournament 16 straight times. They’ve won their conference countless times.
“That group of players they have returning, there’s a lot of seasoned veterans and I’m excited to learn from those guys because they’ve had great college experiences. I’m excited to be around a group that knows how to win and can make a run at a national championship.”
Wesley averaged 17.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per game for USC last season. He equaled his career-high with 31 points against Washington State in March. Wesley made 46.7 percent of his shots, including 33.8 percent of 3-pointers.
