Tyree Eady sports a 11.8 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. In the grand scheme of things, he is an average College Basketball player this season as far as his contributions are concerned. His participation rate is average on the floor, he is not expected to carry the load in any way.

Offensive Breakdown

Tyree Eady this season has 0.5% of his shots attempted from 3 point range He is considered one of the more frequent three point shooters in the conference. He made 0.6% of his three point shots fired this season. He is a sharpshooter from long range and his ability to shoot three point shots must be respected. He made 0.2% of his two point shots attempted this season. He is very inefficient inside the perimeter taking long jump shots and not showing an ability to finish at the rim. His ability to score is not necessarily anything to behold and amassing points in his case is a matter of volume rather than efficiency.

His ability to crash the boards on the offensive end is average.He is a stronger distributor than most that is for sure, but he is not among the elite. He is a turnover prone player and he is a target for defenses. Playing more physical against him or making sure to jump his passes may be a good idea.
