With Arizona Basketball's forecasted roster turnover shaking out about as expected, head coach Tommy Lloyd and the Wildcats have reached out to a forward from the 2024 March Madness Cinderella story: Trey Townsend from Oakland.

The Horizon League Player of the Year and Tournament MVP entered the transfer portal back on April 3 following four full seasons playing for Oakland University and being a part of the Golden Grizzlies' first March Madness appearance since 2011 and first-ever win as a part of the "true" 64-team field. After spending his entire life in Oakland County, Michigan, the 6-foot-6 Townsend will seek a new base of operations for his final year of eligibility.
