During his Senior season Tucker, a point guard, helped lead the Huskies to their first Regional title since 1994 and a 20 win season. He was one of the top scorers in the NIC 10 this season including 81 3-pointers and a 14.4 scoring average, he also averaged 3.9 rebounds a game, 5.3 assists and 2.4 steals.
Harlem Head Coach Mike Winters talked to the Rockford Register-Star after the Huskies Sectional loss to South Elgin about Tucker –
“Somebody had to take control. We weren’t making shots. It was just situations where you start pressing because the ball isn’t going in the basket. It’s about his heart, and he’s trying to make plays for his team. That’s who he is.”
Tucker joins a Rock Valley College program that is playing at the NJCAA D III National Championships in Rochester, Minnesota this week and currently has a 23-6 record.
