Matisse Thybulle (born March 4, 1997)[1] is an American college basketball player for the Washington Huskies. He was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2018.

Contents Early life

Thybulle was born in Scottsdale, Arizona. When he was two, his family moved to Sydney, Australia, where they lived for seven years before returning to the U.S. and settling near Seattle in Sammamish, Washington, in 2005.[2]

He attended Eastside Catholic High School,[3] where he was ranked a four-star recruit by and three-star by ESPN.[4][5]

College career

Thybulle chose to attend the University of Washington based on his relationship with Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar.[5] He started all 34 games as a freshman in 2015–16, averaging 6.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 24.1 minutes per game.[2] As a sophomore in 2016–17, he averaged 10.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.1 steals.[6] After the 9–22 season, Romar was fired.[7]

Thybulle considered leaving the program after his coach left.[7] However, he decided to return for 2017–18 after meeting with new coach Mike Hopkins. The former 22-year Syracuse assistant under Jim Boeheim sold him on the Orange's acclaimed 2–3 zone defense that he planned to install at Washington.[8] On February 17, 2018, Thybulle scored a career-high 26 points in an 82–59 win over Colorado.[9] Possessing a 7-foot (2.1 m) wingspan,[10] he was instrumental to the Huskies' zone defense, which was a key to the team's first 20-win season since 2011–12.[11][12] He was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, becoming the first player in school history to receive the honor.[11] Thybulle averaged a career-high 11.2 points per game, set a Huskies single-season record with 101 steals, and led Washington with a team-leading 49 blocks.[13] He became the second player in Pac-12 history with at least 90 steals and 40 blocks in the same season, joining USC’s Jeff Trepagnier in 1999–2000.[11] Thybulle also holds the school record for career steals, and is the only player in school history ranked in the top 10 in both career steals and blocks.[14]
