Tyler Egli–Career Retrospect

Filed under: Men's Basketball,Omaha Mavericks,Retrospects — Jon Green @ 10:30 am

So I saw a great post by Beau Spencer on Frank Gaines last week on In the story Spencer pointed out how Gaines had gotten his 1st point, his 100th point, his 200th point, etc. Gaines became Fort Wayne’s all-time leading scorer this last weekend. I thought it was a cool idea so I’m going to use it here for a way to look at Omaha’s seniors playing their final games this week.  Let’s start with Tyler Egli.

Egli is from Ankeny, Iowa but came to Omaha by way of UNC-Pembroke where he spent two tears and started four times. He twice hit seven three pointers in a game down there. He transferred to Omaha and sat out the 2010-11 year before playing in 41 games over the last two years. At this point he has 87 career points, 23 career rebounds, 10 career assists, 8 career steals and 1 career block.

1st Point – 11/14/11 vs. Concordia – Tyler got his first career points on a tip-in after he grabbed an offensive rebound with three minutes left in the first half to give Omaha a 42-22 lead. Egli went on to score eight points in the game.
10th Point – 11/22/11 @ North Dakota State – Egli hit a three in the final minute with just 49 seconds left to pass the 10 point mark for his career. The shot cut the lead to 96-65.
25th Point – 12/17/11 @ Milwaukee – Egli hit two three pointers in the final minutes of this game. The second, which made it 83-50 Milwaukee, gave him his 25th career point.
50th Point – 1/8/12 @ Johnson & Wales – Tyler ended up with a career high 11 points in this game. The last of those points came on a three pointer to put Omaha up 65-50 with 7:47 left and took him past 50 career points.

1st Rebound – 11/14/11 vs. Concordia – Egli’s first rebound was the offensive rebound leading to his first career points. Egli grabbed a missed shot by Alex Welhouse and tipped it in for his first career points.
10th Rebound – 1/17/12 @ Nevada – Tyler’s 10th career rebound game as he grabbed a missed jumper by Keith Fuetsch with just two seconds left and the Mavericks trailing 81-69. Egli would rush a three at the buzzer that was no good.
20th Rebound – 1/19/13 @ Cal State Bakersfield – Egli grabbed his 20th career rebound when he rebounded a missed three by John Karhoff with 15:02 left in the game and Omaha down 13. Egli would be fouled on the play and ended up hitting two FTs.


1st Assist – 12/4/11 @ Michigan State – Tyler got his first assist when he passed to Caleb Steffensmeier for a three pointer with Omaha down 81-38 and 13:44 remaining in the game.
5th Assist – 2/1/12 vs. Peru State – Egli got his 5th career assist when he grabbed an offensive rebound and passed ahead to CJ Carter for a layup that made it 85-60 Omaha with 6:43 left.
10th Assist – 2/7/13 @ Western Illinois – Tyler got his 10th career assist as he set up Jacques Coleman for a three with 5:11 left and Omaha down 60-35.

1st Steal – 12/6/11 @ Benedictine – Egli got his first two steals at Benedictine. There is no play-by-play available of this game.
5th Steal – 1/8/12 @ Johnson & Wales – Tyler stole the ball twice against Johnson & Wales. The 2nd was the 5th of his career and came with 3:49 left when he took the ball from Kahler Grandbouche while the Mavericks led by nine.

1st Block – 2/1/12 vs. Peru State – Tyler got his only career block when he stopped a Nick Beck jumper with 2:57 left in the game and Omaha  up 28. Mitchell Farr would grab the loose ball.
