2010 Player Highlights: Will Tashman

MIT freshman forward Will Tashman was a constant presence in the MIT lineup this past season. His work on both ends of the court was a factor the team relied on throughout the year, playing a major role in the team's success. However, as the season progressed, those watching the team began to realize that Tashman was just beginning to scratch the surface of his potential. His continued development during the season earned him the team's Most Improved Player award. After averaging 8.7 ppg and 7.2 rpg as a freshman, while leading the team in FG% at 56.8%, Tashman is poised for a breakout year as a sophomore.

An intensely passionate and competitive player, Tashman is also very gifted, with a very broad basketball skill set. Tashman is very strong inside, making him a strong presence defensively, on the boards, and offensively in the post. He also has a solid shooting stroke, which makes him effective in his mid-range game and even from behind the arc. Glimpses of all facets of his game can be seen in the highlight clips below.
