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."

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
