TSW Bullet Points:
Update - April 29, 2002 * Dave Telep (Kingwood Classic Houston, Texas): Tack Minor, the power guard got after it on Sunday. He hung 41 points on Belmont Shore. He made 3s, attacked the rim like few guards under 6-0 can and made it happen. For all the scoring he does, and he likes to score, lost in the shuffle is his ability to pass. On more than one occasion, Minor drove the lane, beat his man badly and lofted a sweet alley oop to a teammate. Simple play for him, complicated for the rest of the field. Big time weekend for Tack.
Scouting Report - April 22, 2002: Taurean Minor exploded onto the national scene following a sensational 2001 Nike Camp. He is an explosive Point Guard who uses his speed to get to the basket as well as anyone in the class of 2003.
"Tack" is ranked by Prep Stars and others to be the #1 PG in the nation. At the 2001 Nike Camp, His team won the 3 on 3 competition. The opposing PG was Maryland signee John Gilchrist.
Even though Tack has the athletic ability to drive to the rim, some believe he has a ways to go to learn the game of basketball. He has been known to play out of control at times and makes questionable decisions.
Minor is a high major prospect who's still developing. He is considering transferring for his senior year to Heritage Christian. He currently has offers from Cincinnati, Florida State, Texas and UNLV.
