Player Bio

Trey Anthony Lyles was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. He moved to Indiana with his family when he was seven years old and has represented both the United States and Canada in international events. Lyles attended Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, averaging 23.7 points, 12.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists as a senior. He led Arsenal to the state championship game that season and earned Gatorade Indiana Player of the Year honors. Lyles was also named a McDonald's All-American and played in the Jordan Brand Classic. In addition, he was selected a First-Team Parade All-American and was dubbed Indiana Mr. Basketball. In 2013, Lyles played for Team Canada at the FIBA Under-19 World Championship, helping his home country earn an all-time-best sixth-place finish. He has hosted the Trey Mamba Lyles Skills & Training Camp at his alma mater Arsenal Technical High School. Lyles matched each camper's registration fee and donated all money to cancer research.

The Indianapolis, Indiana native helped the Wildcats bring home both the 2014-15 Southeast Conference regular-season championship and the 2015 SEC Tournament championship. In addition, he helped take the Wildcats to the 2015 Final Four, where they lost to Wisconsin. His best effort in that tournament came in a second-round matchup against Cincinnati, when Lyles had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds while chipping in two blocks as well. For the season, Lyles was third on the team in two-point buckets (113) and rebounds per game (5.2). He began his one-and-done campaign as a bench player, but he ended up starting 14 of the last 15 games and averaging 10.7 PPG over that span. Lyles announced he would enter the 2015 NBA Draft after his freshman season and was taken in the first round (12th pick overall) by the Utah Jazz.
