Tyren Johnson

Apparently the Bobcats are quite up on their Sun Belt Conference players. Playing for Louisiana-Lafayette, Johnson was the conference's star performer, and by far and away its most improved player. After barely playing in his first two seasons, Johnson factored in the rotation in his junior season, before exploding in his senior season to become the 2009-10 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, with averages of 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. Johnson is a versatile offensive and defensive player, with a semblance of a jumpshot, the ability to post up and some decent ball-handling for a 6'8 player, athletic enough to defend both forward spots and the occasional two guard as well. He turns it over too much and still needs to work on the jumpshot, but from nowhere, the boy got legitimately good.
