Hunter Tyson for ACC Player of the Year 🗳

“Amazing. He’s the one guy on this team that we really wanted to target, to know where he is at all times, and he gets 28 and 11. That goes to show he plays hard, he’s skilled, he passes the ball, he’s unselfish, he lets the game come to him and he’s efficient. Hell of a player, hell of a player. - Louisville Head Coach Kenny Payne (Jan. 11)”

“He’s a pro. He’s a great player. Making some of those 3s, for someone who’s played the game, it’s hard to catch the ball, not move your feet, not do anything and just make the shot from as far out as he did. He’s a great player. – Miami Head Coach Jim Larranaga (Feb. 4)”

“Obviously Hunter was terrific. Hunter had a career night. Shot the ball unbelievably well, rebounded it. Phenomenal effort. He’s just trying to will our team to win, and I’m really proud of him and happy for him. Good things are happening for him this year. - Brad Brownell (Dec. 30).”
