Flowers (UMass athletics)

Tyrn Flowers has experienced some growing pains as a freshman at UMass, but he recently had his best game in Amherst over the weekend.
The former Sacred Heart standout played 26 minutes, a season high for him, in a 65-62home loss to the University of Central Florida last Saturday. Flowers tallied season highs in points, rebounds,and field goals and three-point field goals made and attempted. All of that after starting the game on the bench.
Flowers, listed at 6-foot-9 and 202 pounds, scored a team-high 20 points, grabbed a team-high nine rebounds and shot 7-of-12 from the field. Flowers, a lefty with a smooth shot, buried 6-of-10 three-point attempts. Of the nine rebounds Flowers grabbed, eight were on the defensive end.
Flowers was the lone shooter to have a good night for UMass, which shot 34.7 from the field and 26.3 from three-point range. The Minutemen were also 22.2 percent (2-of-9) from the foul line. Flowers didn’t attempt a free throw.
It was a rough night night for UMass as a team, but it was an encouraging one for Flowers as an individual.
