Tucker was uber consistent for the Trojans, scoring in double figures in 29 of 30 games, while logging over 36 minutes per game.
Tucker was terrific at getting to the free-throw line, averaging nearly seven free-throw attempts per game. He mostly played the 3, but also saw time at the 2 and 4.
Tucker redshirted in 2017-18 after transferring from Florida Gulf Coast where he averaged 6.9 points and 3.0 rebounds per game in two seasons. He has always been good at 3-point shooting, making 41 percent of his triples for his career.
