2010 Lead Guard Prospect Has Solid D-1 Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan discusses the individual game and high school career of Tyreek Duren, who has some solid division one interest from colleges and universities ...

Tyreek Duren, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound lead guard from St. John Neumann High School in Philadelphia, Penn., is a winner, as proven by his ability to lead a team to over 20 plus victories this season.

He's also has a good basketball IQ and takes the time to understand the defense when he's controlling the offense from the point guard position.

"I'm always looking for the opening of a defense," Duren said. "If I see it, I try to take it. If I see a teammate open for a better shot I make sure I get the ball to him."

Duren has averaged 13 points and seven assists this season.

SOME AREAS TYREEK DUREN WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE:

"...my jumper has gotten much better this year percentage wise. But I would like to also work on my pullup jumper. I haven't done that yet. So I want to focus on improving that area over the next year."

Duren said he has been averaging A's and B's in the first three years of high school. "I want to make it easier on myself to get a college scholarship," he said.

TYREEK DUREN'S LIST OF CURRENT SCHOOLS:

Miami of Florida, Temple, Robert Morris, Mount Saint Mary's, Providence, Stony Brook, and Houston.

He has visited unofficially Temple and Mount Saint Mary's.
