For a long time I would rather shoot from the free throw line and in. I started practicing doing a lot of shoot- ing free throw line and out and I really liked it. Coach worked with me, helped me learn how to frame up inside for shots. Coach taught a lot of the same things all the way through, he was all about team. He had lots of quotes, was repetitive in what he said, and you had no excuse for not understanding any- thing as he said it plenty of times," said Tucker. scoringandreboundingintwoofthose "I've always liked basketball and lnMarch, TuckerplayedintheSun- three years.
