For those of you who may have missed it, here at Anonymous Eagle, we pride ourselves on being a website that encourages college athletics recruits to pick the school that is the best choice for them. As such, we’re starting a new feature today to keep ourselves updated on the goings on of Tyler Herro, the dude that 247 Sports tabbed as the best Class of 2018 prospect from the state of Wisconsin and a dude who elected to go to Kentucky.
As you may recall, the Wisconsin star did not have the best of outings in Kentucky’s game against Southern Illinois. At the time, we predicted that he would be able to bounce back from it, and that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday night against North Dakota. Herro still has the trust of head coach John Calipari after his struggle against the Salukis as he started and played 25 minutes in the 96-58 victory.
Herro had a great night shooting the ball, going 7-12 from the floor and he hit one of his two long range attempts. That gave him 18 points, which is a new career high! Always glad to see Wisconsin players breaking down their personal records. Herro didn’t get too involved with rebounding, grabbing up just one, but Keldon Johnson, Reid Travis, and PJ Washington all had big nights in that department, so that’s fine. Herro found other ways to contribute, adding three assists and a team high five steals. That’s another career best for Milwaukee’s very own, so a pretty good night all around.
Hey, I found a highlight reel! Neat.
Two career bests and a very good bounce back outing from a rough second game of his collegiate career. That gets a big thumbs up from us.
Man, imagine how good he could have been playing for your favorite team.
Kentucky returns to action on Sunday when they host VMI at Rupp Arena. Tip off is set for 5pm Central, and it will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
