J.T. Tiller will be represented by Scorers 1st from now on

J.T. has been one of the leaders for the Mizzou Tigers for the past couple of years which has developed into one of the top programs in the prestigious Big12 conference under the guidance of Head-Coach Mike Anderson, who also recruited Tiller to play his college ball for the Tigers.

J.T. has been the Co-Defensive Player of the Big12 in 2009 and was on the Big12 Defensive 1st Team in 2010. He is a strong guard who is able to lead a team and he will not only be able to produce and get stops on the defensive end. His high basketball IQ paired with his athletic ability and strength allow him to also be dominant on the offensive end with his ability to drive and attack the basket as well as shooting the ball or setting up his teammates.
