Alex Tyus has had a mixed, frustrating and unpredictable senior season, but the 6-8 forward from St Louis has clearly saved his best basketball for last. In three NCAA Tournament games Tyus has scored 35 points and grabbed 36 rebounds. It's the most rebounds he has grabbed in any three game stretch of his career and the 35 points is one shy of his best three game stretch this season.

For seniors Vernon Macklin, Chandler Parsons, Alex Tyus, and even Adam Allen, it was one great night.
