Big East Award For Sally

Tyrone Sally

Two outstanding performances helped Tyrone Sally share the Big East conference basketball player of the week award.

Sally led the Mountaineers to road wins versus LSU (84-69) and Duquesne (72-69). He scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting in the LSU victory. Against Duquesne, Sally had 15 points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks.

Sally's work to develop an all-around game has paid immediate dividends during the early stages of his senior season. He is a threat to both shoot the three-pointer and drive to the basket, which has made him difficult to defend.

On the season, Sally is shooting 55.7% from the field and 80% from the free throw line. He is second on the team in rebounding with 14, and leads the squad in steals with five.
