Tysean Powell (Cumberland Tn. (NAIA)/NCAA Division 1 Duquesne)

Highlight Video from Cumberland and Duquesne:
"Tysean Powell flat came to play in the event. He averaged 16.4 ppg and 9.5 rpg in 5 games in the KPA. He also had 21 points and 10 rebounds in the finals. I love Powell's game because he is versatile and can play the 4, 5, or 3 in some situations. He also is strong and athletic. This guy will be a big time pick up for someone overseas.
