March Madness Bio :: Tyreke Evans

As one of NCAA basketball’s most exciting freshmen, Memphis Tiger Tyreke Evans is definitely a player to watch during March Madness.

Evans is a 6’6” Guard from Chester, Pennsylvania. He was named the MVP of the 2008 McDonald’s All-American game and was among the most coveted basketball recruits in the[kwlink3449] United States[/kwlink] as a result. Evans has not disappointed.

Averaging 16.6 points 5.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists Evans has played up to the hype. He will be key if Memphis is to make another run to the Final Four.

“Athletic, hard working, "special talent" are some of the early accolades he has earned from local observers,” says the Fox Sports scouting report of Evans. [He plays] multiple positions, [has] perimeter ability and scoring in bunches are what he's already displayed. Smooth, with a tremendous feel and passing ability.”

Memphis finished the season with a record of 31-3, taking the Conference USA championship. It enters March Madness as a second seed and faces CSU Northridge.

Evans is likely to be an NBA lottery pick after this season but in the meantime he says he just wants to show his stuff in March Madness.

“No matter the shooting or any nagging injuries, I just have to play my game," Evans told Sports Illustrated. "I just want to play. No questions asked."

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
