Kent State Flashes

Tyree Evans and Basketball tid bits

By admin Published: July 23, 2008

Perhaps the biggest news of the summer still swirls around whether troubled, yet extremely talented, guard Tyree Evans will join the Flashes for next season. Evans is a game-altering talent who some consider an NBA-level player. For anyone unfamiliar with Evans’ story check out this SI.com story from a few months back

Because of Evans checkered criminal past he has not been able to attend Cincinnati, Kansas State and most recently Maryland this year. Maryland coach Gary Williams expected Evans to make an immediate impact on this year’s team until the dean got a whiff of Evans past that includes dealing drugs and statutory rape. Both were pled down to misdemeanors.

Ever since Evans asked for his release from Maryland there have been rumors connecting him to Kent State. While playing for Motlow Community College in Tennessee last year the six-foot-three Evans scored 21.1 points a game while shooting 44 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Motlow is also the former home of new Kent State assistant coach Bobby Steinburg, Evans’ coach last year, and new Kent State forward Frank Henry-Ala.

Kent State will not hold a football game at Dix Stadium until Saturday, Sept. 13 against Delaware State. The season opener against Boston College will be played at Cleveland Browns Stadium Aug. 30. That gives the construction crew working on the stadium renovations ample time to finish their project.

The second phase of the Dix Stadium renovations is expected to be finished by Mid-August and is estimated to cost around $4 million dollars.

The Maxwell Award is presented annually to the nation’s outstanding collegiate football player. Last year Florida quarterback Tim Tebow won the award while former Notre Dame and current Cleveland brown quarterback Brady Quinn won the award the year before.
