https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/columnists/john-niyo/2018/03/1… A player that causes heartache at times, this kid is such an important piece to this team and is that rare athlete I would love to see become a staple at Michigan (ala Glen Robinson). Kid has already put in a ton of work and from sounds of it will continue to work hard for the team. Thank you Charles, we look forward to your continued growth.

Is a critical piece of this team IMO. He is our enforcer. He gives off a toughness vibe and has a fearlessness that I love. His rebounding, defense and overall athleticism is a thing of beauty. Thank you Mr. Matthews for choosing M.

Like Irvin last year, Mathews is my favorite player on this team because he gets so much hate. The guy clearly puts in the work and I’m proud he’s a wolverine

He can be so frustrating with all his turnovers and free throw shooting but he adds a lot to the team overall with his effort, defense, rebounding and athleticism on offense.  If he improves the flaws in his game, he can play at the next level.

lengthen the game were being given that he basically said, 'foul me' then went and delivered; he went 6 of 8 for the game in free throws. The defense he is willing to play doesn't get talked about enough either. Obviously, we have a lot to play for this year but I look forward to seeing him next year after having that 2nd year leap that players in Coach B's system make. If Moe comes back, oh yeah...

He’s found his role this year and is a valuable contributor. I hope he can make a Stauskas-esque leap coming into next year. He’s got a crap-ton of talent, and I’m confident that with another offseason, Beilein can help him maximize it even further.

We’ve got to remember he had to unlearn everything he learned in high school and at UK and then learn a whole new system at Michigan. He could come out guns blazing next season. I hope he does and makes us all look like assholes.
