He emphasizes staying humble and working hard!  I loved his comment:  "I told them when I committed:  Coming to Michigan to win a National Championship!"

He’s averaging more than 17 points and 11 rebounds in the NCAA Tournament. Since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1985, only 8 other players have done that while playing at least 4 games:

I really did like the play in the first clip - Gardner looked good, and Jehu Chesson made 6'3" look like 7'3". I'll definitely take that sort of fight and athleticism going into the season.

As for McGary, his growth as a player has been fun to watch, and really, freshman McGary makes me very excited to think about what sophomore McGary could potenitally look like.
