WHAT BOB RIZZO SAYS ABOUT TYSHAWN TAYLOR'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Tyshawn has made tremendous improvements in his individual game over the past two years. He plays for a great high school basketball program and plays for one of the country's top coaches so it's no surprise he has been improving his game.

What I noticed about Tyshawn is that he can now finish plays better. He used to be just a slasher. Now he can run the team and help his teammates execute plays.
