Tyler Herro is an Example of what Kentucky is Missing Offensively

Kentucky fans have fallen in love with Tyler Herro’s game and the current group of Wildcats could use his offensive skillset. The UK signee has been on an offensive tear all season, which has caught the attention of the entire nation, not just the BBN.


It’s no secret that John Calipari’s club struggles to shoot the basketball and other than Kevin Knox (sometimes), this team doesn’t have a guy that can rise up and get a bucket from the three-point line consistently. It will be next season before fans see it in blue and white but help is on the way when Herro steps foot on campus.


The Wisconsin native has been on a mission, making opponents pay for disrespecting and mocking him. Herro’s offensive game is a perfect example of what this Kentucky team is missing, a guy that scores from all areas of the floor without having to have help from a screener to free him up.


Herro is on quite a roll the last few weeks, scoring 30+ points in eight straight games. In all, he has totaled 30+ on 13 occasions, including multiple games north of 40 points.


Opponents have to be on alert a step or two across half-court and if that doesn’t do it, his step back will leave you wondering what happened. If you don’t believe me, just watch in the video below. The video is only 54 seconds long but I guarantee you will be even more excited when it’s finished.
