Hoops: Ex-Gardens star Tony Watson to play pro ball overseas 

By Jeff Greer

Former Palm Beach Gardens High standout Tony Watson graduated from the University of Buffalo in May and immediately found a job.

Watson, a 6-foot-2 guard, signed with the Bayer Giants Leverkusen, a Pro A basketball club in Germany. He joins former Pahokee standout Zabian Dowdell as one of the better-known basketball products from Palm Beach County playing pro ball in Europe.

Watson’s signing comes after Watson, a four-year player at UB, averaged 11.3 points as a senior.
