Tillman is the Rams senior forward who leads the team in scoring and rebounding. At 6-foot-8, with his quickness, he's a match-up nightmare for opponents. ESPN has cited him as one of the top 25 players in college basketball. Through 29 games, Tillman has averaged 19.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per outing.Here's the link to my piece on VCU's top score and rebounder.
"The most difficult aspect of guarding Tillman is how quickly he executes his post moves," says Chris Mooney, head coach at the University of Richmond. "He is shooting the ball almost immediately upon catching it in the low post. It is essentially impossible to double team him."
