"It's getting better and a lot stronger," Tabb said of the hand. "I have to be careful so I don't take a hard fall. It was a hairline fracture after I fell. I kept playing and playing and it finally broke."
Ironically, Tabb says his jump shot has improved despite the injury. It's tough to find a rational explanation for that one. "It just happened. I came out and started shooting and I felt like I've been shooting better than I was last year."
Still, Tabb is cut from the mold of scorer. He prefers slashing and taking the ball at the rim. The faster the tempo, the more fun he's apt to have. That's exactly the kind of style he'll look for in a college.
"I like playing up tempo games and running the court … that's what I'll look for right now. I'll watch schools on TV and see what style they're looking to run."
Marquette and St. Louis have been out to see him on occasion.
It should be a big spring and summer for him as he jockeys to move up the wish lists of various schools.
