Tyus mum


Had a chance to reach the Tyus household on Monday, but still no new developments on whether Alex Tyus will end up back at Florida.

Tyus’ father, Thomas, said his son did not, “want to talk at this time” after I identified myself in a phone call Monday night.

Florida announced last week that Tyus, UF’s second leading scorer and leading rebounder, chose not to come back for junior season. He became the 10th Florida basketball player to transfer since 2003-04.

Other rumors have Tyus winding up at Cal-Riverside to be closer to his girlfriend, former UF volleyball player Alli Cecchini.
