Former UW-M Player, Matt Tiby, Works out with Bucks
Former Milwaukee men’s basketball standout Matt Tiby participated in a NBA Pre-Draft workout with the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday. A First Team All-Horizon League and National Association of Basketball Coaches Second Team All-District selection in 2015-16, Tiby averaged team highs of 15.6 points and 8.2 rebounds per game this season.
The 6-foot-8 forward, who started all 98 of the games in which he appeared during his three-year career at Milwaukee, scored in double figures on 28 occasions in 2015-16, topping the 20-point mark nine times. He also recorded nine double-doubles.
Tiby had several memorable performances during his senior season, but his best was a 31-point, 17-rebound effort in an overtime loss to South Dakota on December 17.
Just the 15th player in Milwaukee men’s basketball history to post 1,000 points and 500 rebounds, Tiby ranks 11th in program records with 1,332 points scored. His career total of 734 rebounds places him sixth all-time.
A Second Team All-Horizon League pick in 2014-15, Tiby averaged 13.3 ppg and 7.8 rpg that season.
