Tyshawn Archie is a lighting quick 6’1 lead guard who has been emerging as one of the top 2023 guards in the Houston area. Archie had a big grassroots season last spring and summer for Team Temple playing on the NY2LA Basketball Association and has continued his strong play this high school season for King HS (TX). 

Archie is at his best with the ball in his hands and can operate as a scorer or distributer. He has no problem creating space off the dribble for open jumpers and breaking down defenders to get to the rim. 

NY2LA Sports caught up with Archie to discuss his junior season, update his recruitment, his experience playing with Team Temple, and why college coaches should be watching. 

How would you describe your game?

Tyshawn Archie: “I’m more of a score first guard. I think my passing is underrated and my defense. I can play passing lanes really well too.”

How has your junior season been going?

“My junior season is going good for me right now. I am averaging 17 points and 3 assists.”

What the latest on your recruitment and what schools do you talk to the most?

“My recruitment is going alright. I have been talking to my hometown school Sam Houston State, Louisiana Tech, and I’ve also spoken to Rice.”

How was your experience playing with Team Temple last year on the NY2LA Circuit?

“Playing with Team Temple made me have to step up my leadership a lot. It was a lot of fun and was great competition.”

What makes you different as a player and why should college coaches offer you?

“I think colleges should offer me because of my scoring ability. I have yet to allow one person to shut me down for a full game. I’m a hard worker, especially at practice, and I’m competitive in everything I do. I also can defend my position well, smaller guards or bigger guards.”
