Murray's Tyler Rambo embraces role with team
MURRAY, KY -- Tyler Rambo isn't Murray State's leading scorer, or their leading rebounder. But he loves his role on this years team.
"All of the coaches have been hard on me this year because they know what I can do," the sophomore forward said. "I love being able to help them."
Rambo has averaged 7 points per game so far this season. And he is doing it by playing outside of his normal position on the court.
"He plays the four for us, but he really should be at the three," said senior guard Dexter Fields. "But by him playing that position he really helps us out and has done a great job."
One thing he has done well this year is getting to the free throw line, where he is second on the team in total attempts. However, he is shooting just over 50 percent from the line, something he is working on.
"Coach Small has been on me about getting shots in," said Rambo. "After practice everyday I shoot at least 100 before I can leave."
And he has done just that, going 7-8 against Austin Peay.
"I try to do it all," he said. "Not all like superman, but I do what I can to play my part."
So even though he probably won't be relied on to lead the Racers in any stats this season, he is still a huge part of Murray State's success.
