Other than Ezeli, Vandy's frontcourt options include Steve Tchiengang, a 6'9 240lb tough and pretty athletic post defender who showed up this season with improved range on his jumpshot. He scores little, and doesn't handle or create, but Tchiengang hustles, moves the ball, plays physically, moans about foul calls, and sticks his jumpshots, now hitting 42% of his threes on the season. 6'7 forward Andre Walker boasts the rather amazing averages of 3 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists - the redshirt junior has missed much of the season due to injury, as has been the story most of his career of Vandy, but is healthy again in time for the tournament, and does as many little things (and as few big things) as his numbers suggests. Walker can't shoot threes or dribble, and is physically overmatched at times when pressed into service as a power forward, but he's a rebounding, help-defending, high IQ, mid-range, face-up point forward. It's hard not to like that combination.
