Endless Motor Sports had the privilege of speaking with Tyrese Haliburton, one of the fastest rising guards in the 2018 class. The Oshkosh North (WI) standout speaks on the high school season, improvements to his game and where he’s at with the recruiting process.
I. High School Season
EM: How are things going for Oshkosh North so far from a team and individual standpoint?
TH: We finished the regular season with an undefeated record, the best record in school history! We’re currently ranked top 5 in the Midwest so from a team standpoint its going great. Individually, I like the way I’m playing. I’m facilitating the ball really well, and getting to the rim when I need to. I’d like to shoot the ball better from the 3, but I feel like I’m playing good defense, rebounding well, facilitating, and scoring well.

TH: Ballhandling and getting stronger, that’s something I’ll always have to work on to succeed at the next level.
