Battle, a 6-foot-7 combo-guard, transferred to St. Joseph's (Met.) in August. A main reason for the transfer was to play alongside his younger brother, Khalif, who is a 6-foot-3 freshman guard.
In their season opener tonight, Tyus scored a game-high 17 points to go along with six rebounds, five assists and three steals. St. Joseph (Met.) defeated South Brusnwick, 58-42.
St. Joseph is now 1-0 on the season. Their next game is Sunday against Ramapo.
