VCU's Bones Hyland made 6 of 11 attempts from 3-point range Tuesday night against Western Carolina, for a career-high 31 points.
Entering VCU, he was a 4-star recruit and his RSCI was 89th in the nation and ranked 81st in the 2019 “24/7 Sports” composite rankings. He started the season coming off the bench for a VCU team that had tremendous (experienced) guard depth. He only played greater than 20 minutes once in his first eleven games, and in that game he finished with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in just 22 minutes against Jacksonville State in November.“It made me become a better man because it helped me visualize things better, as far as what I was doing and what I was playing basketball for,” Hyland said. “It really helped me grow and become more mature, and just helped me become a leader.”
Adding strength and explosiveness will help him progress in the specific areas of improvement that I’ve mentioned previously, so he’s on the right track here. There’s really not much else to add here until we see him step on the court next year and check in on the strength improvement and see him apply in it a game setting when attacking the rim and defending.“I’m working on my strength and explosiveness this off-season,” said Hyland.
“League pass alert” is a reference to NBA League Pass where you can set alerts to know when & where a team or player is playing—there is a twitter feed and you can set up an messaging alert. He is basically saying Bones is must see for basketball fans.And he's so likable and all, and gosh darn, you want to root for him. "league pass alert" what is that?
That's seriously impressive if Bones is in the top 10 of a list that Luka Garza is at the top of.
