Tim Hardaway Jr
Michigan Basketball guard Tim Hardaway Jr was selected #24 overall in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks. Hardaway Jr and teammate Trey Burke were both selected in the first round. That is the first time since 1994 (Jalen Rose and Juwan Howard) that two Michigan Wolverines were selected in the first round of the NBA Draft.
A three year starter, for Michigan, Hardaway Jr was instrumental in returning Michigan Basketball to relevance. He missed just one game in his career and started all 107 games he did play in. The Wolverines were 76-32 during Hardaway Jr’s career and appeared in the NCAA Tournament all three season. In his final season, Michigan advanced to the National Championship game where they lost to Louisville.
