Alex Tyus Returns!
Forward Alex Tyus now says he wants to stay on the Gator basketball team -- changing his mind about 10 days after announcing plans to transfer.
The 6-foot-8 sophomore from St. Louis was Florida's second-leading scorer at 13 points per game and leading rebounder at six per game last season. Tyus played out of position all year, having to line up at center on an undersized team, and had decided to transfer because he wanted to play small forward. Coach Billy Donovan welcomed Tyus back. Tyus decision to stay gives Florida's frontcourt a boost eading into next season. Had Tyus transferred, the Gators would have had little experience behind center Kenny Kadji and forwards Vernon Macklin, Dan Werner, Adam Allen and Chandler Parsons. Now, Donovan will have five big men: Tyus, Kadji, Macklin, Eloy
Vargas and incoming freshman Erik Murphy.
