Family tradition: Daily Sun’s Boys Basketball Player of the Year

Tyrone starred for the Eagles himself in the early ’90s before taking off to California for a short period of time to play basketball at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. With Ileana on the way, Tyrone returned to Flagstaff and played for two years at Northern Arizona. His final year of college came under head coach Ben Howland and his assistants Jamie Dixon and Mike Adras in 1994-95, the same year Trevor was born as well. With the chance to double work and parenting at the same time around a sport he loved, Tyrone relished the chance to teach his kids how to be the best. more
