Jerome Tang Calls New Point Guard Tylor Perry Best Shooter in America

Tylor Perry, Kansas State‘s newest gem, was on full display in the Wildcats’ summer exhibition trip to Israel this summer after putting on a clinic in three straight games.

The Wildcats took on three teams on the trip including Israeli Select, Mexico, and the UAE Select Team where Perry averaged a whopping 22.6 points per game, leading Kansas State to a record of 2-1 in their overseas stretch.


Perry shined on the court for each of the Wildcats’ games on the offseason tour, but where he made the biggest splash was in game three against the UAE Select Team where he exploded for 33 points in just 18 minutes.

According to the universities website, Perry lead the squad with 33 points as the Wildcats exploded for 35 points in the second quarter, followed by 39 points in the third to balloon their lead up to 51 points. Perry went 12-of-15 from the field (80%), including 9-of-11 (81%) from 3-point range, in just 18 minutes of action, with head coach Jerome Tang electing to rotate each player in to gain some experience.

Kansas State has yet to officially announce its non-conference schedule, but with the Wildcats fresh off an Elite Eight run in Jerome Tang’s first year at the helm, the future appears to be brighter than ever in Manhattan.
