BREAKING: Ex-Sycamore transfers to USI

TERRE HAUTE — Tyson Schnitker, who last played for Indiana State in the 2005-06 college basketball season, has accepted a scholarship to play his final year of eligibility at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.

The 6-foot-2 guard will be a graduate student at USI and is transferring from ISU, where he remained a student after leaving the Sycamore basketball team.

Schnitker follows Rashard Sullivan as the second graduate student to join the Eagles in as many years.

After sitting out last season, Schnitker resumes his collegiate career at USI. He averaged 7.6 points and 2.1 assists per game in 79 appearances as a Sycamore. Schnitker had his best season as a junior when he started 27 games and averaged 10.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per contest.

In 2005-06, he had a career-best 24 points in the win at Southern Illinois University and nine rebounds in the win over Central State University.

Schnitker played for Robinson (Ill.) High School) and Coach Gus Gillespie prior to attending Indiana State. He averaged 16.0 points and 7.0 assists as a senior on his way to being named All-Conference and All-Area by the Decatur Herald and Review.

“Tyson solidifies our back court,” said Herdes. “Combining Tyson with Kenny Love and Kenny Page gives us an experienced back court that can do all the little things well — shoot, pass, and drive.”

With the addition of Schnitker, the Eagles have five new players for next season, including forwards Norman Plummer (Cincinnati, Ohio), Anthony Pimble (Bronx, New York) and Nate Schumacher (Evansville, Indiana); and guard/forward Nick Duncheon (Montgomery, Indiana) Pimble and Plummer joined the team this week, while Schumacher and Duncheon signed with the Eagles during the fall.
