Former Argo Towns Goes Above Rim on and off the Court

Posted: Updated:
 Marcel Towns can do special things with a basketball in his hands.

But he's a lot more than just a gifted basketball player.

"I didn't graduate last year so I'm just here taking a couple credits and trying to get my degree," said Towns.

On top of school, Towns has continued to play the game he loves. In fact, he's had a couple of NBA D-League tryouts and has entered the D-League Draft which is November 1.

"I had one with Bakersfield Jam - they're Phoenix Suns affiliate and then the Reno Bighorns for the Sacramento Kings. And it's just a blessing really because it's a great opportunity especially playing at an NAIA school here at Great Falls and just pretty much putting on for the Frontier Conference," said Towns.

Towns is spending a lot of time working on his own game in the hopes of hearing his name called on Draft night.

But he's also spending time in community and helping high school kids work on their game too.

"Me and my roommates have our own small little company called Wavvy Enterprise and we're actually trying to work out kids in the community here in Great Falls. Especially since they showed me support, I just want to give back to the community." said Towns.

And the community appreciates it, especially the high school athletes that Towns works with.

"It's really cool. To see a good player like that come back and works with us. Give us a chance to learns hat he's got and show us what we got. It's good, he's got a lot of good tips. Helps me a lot and rounds my game and pushes me every time i come workout with him," said Great Falls High senior, Matt Klesh.

"He's just a great player and it's great to see someone come back and give us little tips here and there and show us what his game's like and just help us expand our own game," said CMR junior Karl Tucker II.

Towns has done his fair share on the basketball court to help UGF. And now that he's helping kids in the community, Great Falls is in good hands.
