Two decades ago, former NBA star Tim Hardaway drained a three-pointer during a commercial and looked in the camera to say, “I got skills.”
On Thursday, Hardaway’s son showed off those inherited skills by putting on a clinic from behind the arc during Michigan’s 71-56 win against 13th-seeded South Dakota State. The junior guard led the fourth-seeded Wolverines with 21 points on 5-of-7 shooting from three-point land.
Coincidentally, Michigan’s other NBA son, Glenn Robinson III, poured in 21 points, including three three-pointers.
Their effort made up for a sub-par night from Trey Burke, who went just 2 of 12 with six points, a season low, and was briefly sidelined after hitting his head.
The Wolverines advance to face the winner of Friday’s matchup between VCU and Akron.
The Nate Wolters vs. Trey Burke show turned into the Tim Hardaway and Glenn Robinson III show.
