AT the Ramey-Jets United Tournament in Belleville, Illinois, MO Team Carroll Elite player Trent Lyles was team focused both on and off the court. In between games, HoopFocus had the opportunity to pull Trent away from his teammates and coach to discuss his game, the tournament, and what is ahead for him.
TRENT Lyles is a pass first guard who believes his ability to see the whole court, in a field general type of way, is the strongest part of his game. His eyes are always working to finding the best opportunity for his team to convert the possession into points. Scoring comes second for him as he would rather spread the love to his team, but that does mean he is not focused on scoring. Shooting is something that he says is something that a player can always improve on so every day in the gym he works on shooting from various spots on the court. Another fixture of his game that he works on every day is his ball handling. His ball handling is not lacking for talent, but it is just a part of the game he believes he can never stop improving.
TRENT has had interest shown from a few mid-major schools but will not think too hard on a decision or even where he may be interested in until after the AAU summer circuit as to not distract from his team and performance.
TRENT is so focused on the now and his current squad that any question asked of that was specific to him, he would always reply with something about the team or instead of answering about how he played, it was how the team played. His goals for his senior season are not to gain more offers or personal accolades, but for his high school team to win a state championship.
TRENT Lyles is true point guard whose team first attitude can be a real asset for any team looking for a player that looks to make the team better before himself.
