TYRONE NASH'S BEST ASSET: His versatility is his biggest advantage. Nash has proven to be a warrior around the basket against bigger bodies, using his frame to shield would be defenders to grab loose balls.

Nash is an intelligent basketball player too. He seeks out the opponent's weakness and looks to exploit it during the game. He has the ability to find open teammates for baskets too.

COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY OF CHOICE: Notre Dame of the Big East Conference. Nash bypassed an opportunity to play at several big name schools in 2006. Instead, he prepped, making improvements in his game and preparing himself for the next level.

CONCLUSION: Tyrone is a hard-worker. He battled back from a serious knee injury to make himself a high major player. He's a terrific young man who has the ability to be an impact player for the Fighting Irish.
