Notes: 2012: Selected by Golden State in 2nd round (35th overall) of the NBA Draft.
2012 NABC National Player of the Year and Consensus First-Team All-American during senior season at Michigan State...Named Big Ten Player of the Year by both the league`s coaches and media, and was a unanimous selection for First-Team All-Big Ten squad...Big Ten All-Defensive Team pick in 2012, finished third in the voting for the Wooden Award and was one of four finalists for the Naismith Award...Finished career as the Spartans` all-time rebounding leader with 1,096, and is just the third player in program history to have at least 1,000 points (1,517) and 1,000 rebounds...Led the Big Ten and ranked third
nationally with 22 double-doubles as a senior, his 10.6 rpg pacing the league and placing him ninth nationally...Delivered seven games with at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in 2011-12...Owns three career triple-doubles, two of those coming in the NCAA Tournament, joining Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson as the only players to have managed the latter feat...Finished second in MSU history in both blocked shots (117) and steals (180)...Has shown that he can easily fill up a stat sheet, but for someone who plays along the front line, he typically plays below the rim and doesn`t display enough hard-nosed effort in the paint.
