Helped lead the Connecticut Huskies to their fourth national title in 2014 ... Averaged 16.0 points and 7.2 rebounds during the six games in the NCAA Tournament for the Huskies, prompting him to forego his senior season ... Averaged 13.1 ppg during the 2013-14 season and led UConn in rebounding at 6.0 boards per game, in addition to extending his reach on offense with 41.7 percent shooting behind the 3-point line ... Started all 30 games as a sophomore, putting up 12.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg and 1.5 blocked shots per outing ... Made huge advances from freshman season when he was little more than a role player ... Has a nose for the ball and uses his impressive 7-0 wingspan to gather rebounds ... Played several positions in college, and while that shows versatility, it also means he needs to focus more on specific aspects of one position at which he can grow and prosper ... Before heading to UConn, he spent a post graduate year at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
