Coach Haase on Tyler
"On the court, Tyler is a warrior who has the ability to guard multiple positions," Haase said. "He can rebound with guys who are much bigger than he is. He is coming around as a shooter and playmaker as well. He is a perimeter player, and I believe he will be a big-time player for this program."
