Alexander Tyutyunik (born July 5, 1990 in Almaty, Kazakhstan) is a Kazakh professional basketball player. He plays for the Astana Tigers of the Kazakh Basketball League.

Despite his young age, Tyutyunik has already competed in most of Asia’s most prestigious basketball events, including the Stankovic Cup, the FIBA Under-19 World Championship and FIBA Asia Championship.[1]

At the FIBA Under-19 World Championship 2009, Tyutyunik helped the Kazakhs to a 12th-place finish and was the tournament's third leading scorer with 19.4 points per game.[2] He also competed for the Kazakhstan national basketball team at the FIBA Asia Championship 2007 and FIBA Asia Championship 2009.

As a 17-year-old, Tyutyunik saw little action off the bench for the Kazakhs, but was the team's best player at the 2009 Championships as a 19-year-old. He averaged a team leading 16.8 points per game for the ninth-place Kazakhs en route to being named to the All-Tournament third team.[3]
