Tyler Harvey of Eastern Washington has declared for the 2015 NBA Draft. 

As a junior in 2014-2015, Harvey led the nation in scoring with 23.1 points per game. He made the most threes of anyone in NCAA Division I basketball, hitting 128 of his shots beyond the arc at a 43.1 percent clip. Overall, Harvey shot 46.9 percent on field goals, and shot 85.2% from the charity stripe as well, a stellar stat for a college player. This is all on only 2.0 turnovers per game.

The scoring guard also recorded 3.6 rebounds per game and 2.6 assists per game. He led the EWU Eagles to an NCAA Tournament appearance as a #13 seed. In a Round of 64 loss to the Georgetown Hoyas, Harvey scored 27 points in the effort that just came up short. The Eagles finished the season with 26 wins and the third highest average in points scored per game.

Harvey will be a very valuable pickup to any NBA team who needs instant energy, shooting, and scoring. This marksman has a knack for getting to the hoop and elevating his team to victory.
