Timus: a 6'6" senior forward from Washington, DC.
Averaging 14.9 ppg, 5.4 rpg, and 1.9 apg on 50.7% shooting (35/69), is
undoubtedly the star of the team stats wise

shooting (23/50). Also has a .1

(21/47) from beyond the arc, all of these stats have occurred in 156 minutes of
playing time, including a miniscule 3 assists, appears to be a good shooter, but
the stats would show he also appears to be a ball hog, MU needs to be careful
with him off the bench as he appears to be the only three point threat MSU
