Walter McCarty Mentoring Evansville’s JaQuan Lyle
He talks with someone that has been there before.
Former Kentucky great Walter McCarty, also from Evansville, has been mentoring the 5 star junior.
As with Duncan, Lyle has to take things in stride, McCarty said. McCarty talked to the 6-5 junior when he was down after a subpar performance in Bosse’s double-digit loss to Dayton Thurgood Marshall in the Bosse Winter Classic on Dec. 28.
“I told him everybody has those kind of games,” said McCarty, who turns 39 on Feb. 1.
Regarded as one of the top 20 juniors in the nation, Lyle could eventually become the first Evansville player to make the NBA since McCarty and Calbert Cheaney. “He has a lot of talent,” McCarty said. “He has a chance to be a good player. You can’t please everybody, no matter how many points you score.”
