Rankings from AP Poll

The 2013–14 Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team (sometimes Team 98)[1] represented the University of Michigan during the 2013–14 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The team played its home games in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the forty-seventh consecutive year at the Crisler Center, which has a capacity of 12,707. This season marked the team's ninety-eighth season and ninety-seventh consecutive year as a member of the Big Ten Conference (B1G). The team was led by 7th-year head coach John Beilein. As the 2013–14 Big Ten Regular Season Champions, the team was the 14th and 8th outright Big Ten Conference champion in school history. The team was John Beilein's fourth conference champion and his second at Michigan.

The 2012–13 team graduated five seniors and had two underclassmen (Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr.) who were first round draft choices in the 2013 NBA Draft from the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament national runner-up team. Nonetheless, three of the five national runner-up team starters (Mitch McGary, Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas) were returning. The entering class was highlighted by a pair of state Boys Basketball Gatorade Players of the Year in Indiana Mr. Basketball Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton who was runner-up in the Mr. Basketball of Michigan. It included three scholarship players and four walk-ons. The team was a top 10 preseason selection according to the vast majority of preseason rankings. McGary was a preseason All-American according to many media sources. However, he was plagued with back problems during the season and played in 8 of the team's first 11 games before opting for season-ending surgery.

In the Conference portion of the schedule, Michigan won its first 8 games, including a stretch of three games in which it defeated top ten opponents in consecutive games, a feat no Division I team has accomplished since the 2006–07 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. During the conference portion of the schedule, Michigan won at Wisconsin for the first time since 1999 and at Ohio State for the first time since 2003. The team defeated the same ranked opponent twice in the same season for the first time in thirteen seasons.

The team was led by 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball All-American consensus second team selection and Big Ten Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year Stauskas who was a unanimous first team All-B1G selection. Caris LeVert (B1G 2nd team), Robinson (B1G honorable mention) and Walton (B1G All-Freshman) also earned conference honors, while Beilein was named Coach of the Year by the B1G media.

The entering class made great strides in the summer of 2012. Irvin jumped from number 68 to number 31 in the Rivals.com ranking, while Walton jumped from 57 to 44. As of the end of August 2012, Irvin was rated 21st, 31st and 62nd in the national class of 2013 by ESPN, Rivals.com and Scout.com, respectively. Walton was ranked 32nd, 44th and 43rd, respectively. Donnal was ranked 96th, 104th and 80th.[4] At the end of November 2012, the Michigan entering class of 2013 was ranked 11th, 11th and 15th as a class as a group. When the final Rivals.com class of 2013 rankings came out on April 15, 2013, Irvin, Walton and Donnal were ranked 24, 37 and 111, respectively.[5]

Walton, Jr. was runner up in the 2013 Mr. Basketball of Michigan by a 2130–2086 margin to Iowa State signee Monte Morris despite having one more first place vote.[6][7] Irvin was named 2013 Indiana Mr. Basketball, giving Hamilton Southeastern High School the state's first back-to-back winners (Gary Harris) from the same high school.[8] Both Walton and Irvin were 2013 Parade All-American honorees.[9] Both were also named state Boys Basketball Gatorade Player of the Year.[10] Walton is expected to assume the starting point guard role from Burke, ahead of Spike Albrecht.[11]

The class originally included Austin Hatch, who made his verbal commitment on June 13, 2011, but he was injured in an airplane crash that killed both of his parents.[12] He was in critical condition following the accident on June 24, 2011.[13]

Preseason[edit]

Roster[edit]

On April 14, 2013, Burke entered the 2013 NBA Draft.[14][15] On April 17, Hardaway declared for the NBA Draft.[16] On April 18, McGary and Robinson decided not to enter their names in the NBA Draft.[17][18][19] On April 29, Andrew Dakich, son of Dan Dakich, committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on.[20][21] Andrew Dakich and Cole McConnell joined the incoming class that reported for summer practice on June 22, 2013 as walk-ons.[22][23] On September 13, Sean Lonergan joined the team as a third walk-on.[24] Sophomore Brad Anlauf who had redshirted on the 2012 Michigan Wolverines football team joined the team after walk-on tryouts were held.[25]

On June 27, 2013 Burke was selected 9th in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves and then traded to the Utah Jazz for the 14th and 21st picks, which were used to select Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng.[26][27] Hardaway was drafted 24th by the New York Knicks.[28]

Pre offseason rankings[edit]

The earliest preseason predictions came the day after the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, which was before final decisions were made regarding declaring for the 2013 NBA Draft by college players and before many high school players had signed their National Letters of Intent regarding their 2013 matriculations. With the expectation that most of the talented players from the prior season (Burke, Robinson, Hardaway and McGary) would likely enter the draft, Michigan was not projected to be a ranked team by ESPN.[29] USA Today projected that if one of the four possible 2013 NBA draft entrants returned, Michigan could be ranked 24th, but that if they all returned, Michigan would be preseason #1.[30]

On April 29, the day after the 2013 NBA Draft entry deadline with McGary and Robinson returning, the team was ranked 9th by ESPN's Jason King as well as by ESPN's Andy Katz.[31][32] On the same day, CBSSports.com's staff ranked Michigan #4.[33] ESPN's Dick Vitale predicted the team would be a preseason number 7, on May 2.[34] On May 3, Nicole Auerbach and Scott Gleeson of USA Today projected them as the number 7 ranked team.[35] On May 30, Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy selected Michigan number seven.[36]

On April 30, ESPN's Eamonn Brennan named McGary a first team 2013-14 pre-offseason All-American selection.[37] In June 2013, Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy named McGary and Robinson as the first and fourth best players at their respective positions (center and small forward) for the upcoming season.[38][39]

Fall press[edit]

The official preseason media poll announced by the Big Ten Conference at its October 31 media day conference predicted that Michigan would finish second to rival Michigan State ahead of Ohio State. The same media poll selected McGary and Robinson to the preseason All-Big Ten team.[40] An unofficial media poll announced the day before by the Big Ten Network, which provided additional detail, also selected McGary and Robinson to its All-Big Ten Conference team.[41] McGary and Robinson were both on the 50-man Naismith Award and Wooden Award preseason watchlists.[42][43] An independent unofficial media poll of Big Ten beat writers, also selected Michigan to edge out Ohio State for second place.[44] Michigan began the season ranked number 9 in the preseason Coaches' Poll and number 7 in the AP Poll.[45][46]

On September 6, Sporting News named McGary to its preseason first team All-American team as well as the best overall player in the Big Ten Conference, while naming Robinson as 5th best. The magazine also named Irvin and Walton the 2nd and 3rd best conference newcomers, respectively. It chose Bielien as the conference's 3rd best coach.[47][48] Associated Press named McGary as a first team preseason selection.[49] Sports Illustrated named Walton the 9th best freshman (2nd best in the Big Ten behind Noah Vonleh).[50] Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook named McGary a preseason second team All-American.[51] Lindy's Sports selected Robinson as the best NBA prospect in the Big Ten and 2nd best small forward in the country. They also named him to the preseason All-Big Ten team along with Aaron Craft, Keith Appling, Gary Harris and Adreian Payne. They selected Stauskas and McGary to the second team, naming McGary as the nation's second best power forward and Stuaskas as the nation's number 10 shooting guard and Big Ten's best shooter.[52] Athlon Sports selected McGary to its preseason All-American second team.[53] They selected McGary to the preseason All-Big Ten first team and Robinson to the preseason All-Big Ten second team.[54] CBS Sports selected McGary as a second team All-American.[55] McGary joined McDermott, Smart, Wiggins and Julius Randle as first team preseason All-Americans by USA Today Sports 2013-14 College Basketball Preview Magazine.[56] However, USA Today sports staff later selected him as second team.[57] Dick Vitale selected McGary to his All-Solid Gold preseason first team (along with Aaron Craft).[58]

The September 6 Sporting News announcements also included a number 7 ranking for Michigan,[47] but they have noted concern for Walton's ability to replace national player of the year Burke.[59] Later that month, the team was selected as the number eight ranked team by USA Today.[56] The Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook selected Michigan number 9 in its preaseason poll.[51] Lindy's Sports picked Michigan as the number 10 preseason selection.[52] Athlon Sports selected Michigan number 12 in its preseason ranking.[60] SLAM Magazine selected Michigan as its preseason number 9 selection.[61] CBS Sports ranked Michigan 12 in its preseason poll.[62] The Sports Illustrated power ranking listed Michigan sixth.[63] The Sports Illustrated College Basketball preview edition used Robinson on the cover of one of its four regional covers and ranked Michigan seventh.[64]

Practice and exhibition[edit]

With the enactment of new NCAA rules, the team was able to commence preseason practices on September 27.[1] On October 4, Cole McConnell began his tenure as the team's official blogger assuming the role that Josh Bartelstein had held during his 4 years at Michigan.[65] The team held an open practice on October 21.[66] On October 24, the University of Michigan hosted its on-campus Media Day press conference event.[67][68] On October 31, the Big Ten Conference hosted its media day in Rosemont, Illinois.[69] In the second exhibition game on November 4 against Wayne State at Crisler Center, the Big Ten Network scheduled it first-ever live Student U telecast on the linear TV network.[70] During the first week of the season, the team elected, Robinson, Jordan Morgan and Jon Horford as team captains.[71]

2014–15 team recruits[edit]

Ricky Doyle, D. J. Willson and Kameron Chatman signed their NLIs on November 13, 2013.[72][73][74]

Hatch, who survived a plane crash that killed his mother and two siblings in 2003 and another that killed his father and stepmother in 2011 days after signing his NLI with Michigan, sat out both the 2011–12 and 2012–13 high school basketball seasons for Canturbury. He moved to Los Angeles and played as a fifth-year high school senior at Loyola High School of Los Angeles.[75][76][77] Hatch signed a NLI on November 14, 2013.[78][79] On January 8, 2014, Hatch appeared in his first high school basketball game since the 2011 crash and sank his first three point shot.[80][81][82]

Chatman led Columbia Christian to the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) Class 1A championship over Horizon Christian Schools on March 8, 2014.[83] On March 10, Chatman was one of 26 players selected for the April 18, 2014 Jordan Brand Classic.[84]

On December 21, the team played Stanford at the Barclays Center as part of a triple-header.[87] On January 25, ESPN's College GameDay covered the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry game.[88]

Regular season[edit]

November[edit]

Michigan began its regular season on November 8 with a 69–42 victory against UMass Lowell. Several returning players set or tied career highs while six freshman saw their first action. The game followed a ceremony in which the team raised a banner into the rafters to celebrate its 2013 NCAA tournament regional championship and national runner-up finish.[89][90] On November 12 against South Carolina State, the team opened up a 59–23 lead at halftime by shooting 12 of 19 on its three point attempts and went on to win by a score of 93–59. Stauskas and LeVert both establish career highs in points as they combined to go 11 for 13 from beyond the three point line and Horford added a career-high 15 rebounds.[91][92] After missing the preseason and first two regular season games, Mitch McGary returned to play against Iowa State on November 17 posting 9 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals, but Michigan lost its first game of the season 77–70.[93][94] Michigan defeated Long Beach State in the first round of the 2013 Puerto Rico Tip-Off on November 21. Michigan set a Puerto Rico Tip-Off record by making 14 three point shots.[95][96] The next day against Florida State in the semifinals, Michigan was behind by 10 points at halftime,[97] 16 points with 17:16 remaining[98][99] and 63–54 with a few minutes left before forcing overtime and winning 82–80.[97] In the final four minutes, Michigan employed a 1-3-1 zone to force 5 turnovers during it 13–5 spurt to make up a 64–56 deficit.[97] On November 24, Michigan lost in the championship game to Charlotte on a last second tipin. Stauskas earned tournament MVP.[100] Michigan fell to 0–2 all-time against Charlotte 49ers men's basketball.[101] During the game "Caris LeVert missed most of the first half in foul trouble. Glenn Robinson III missed the final 30 minutes with a back injury after taking a tough first-half fall, and Nik Stauskas...played the final 9½ minutes with a twisted ankle."[102] Leading scorer Stauskas sat out the November 29 game against Coppin State, but with 24 points from freshman Zak Irvin, Michigan won in an 87–45 rout. McGary and Morgan made their first starts of the season.[103][104] Irvin's performance was recognized on December 2, with a Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week honor.[105]

December[edit]

On December 3, Michigan played Duke (#10 AP Poll/ #8 Coaches' Poll)[106] in the ACC–Big Ten Challenge in what some regard as a rivalry game. Michigan lost 79–69.[107] Michigan defeated Houston Baptist by the 54 points on December 7, marking the widest margin of victory in the John Beilein era. The team also tied the 2008–09 and the 2010–11 teams by making 16 three point shots in a game.[108][109] With the loss to Duke, Michigan fell out of the AP Poll, ending the sixth longest active streak at 44 consecutive weeks.[110] On December 14, Michigan lost to (#1/#1)[111] Arizona 72–70 in a contest that Arizona did not hold the lead for good until the final 24.6 seconds after Michigan led most of the game.[112] Following the loss, Michigan also fell out of the Coaches' Poll.[113] On December 21, Michigan defeated Stanford without McGary, who sat out due to back ailments.[114][115] Stauskas had 19 points and 4 assists, while Robinson had 17 and 6 rebounds. Irvin posted 12 points (on 4–8 three point shooting) and 6 rebounds.[116] On December 23, Irvin earned co-Freshman of the Week honors with Noah Vonleh from the Big Ten Conference.[117] On December 27, McGary announced that he would have back surgery.[118] On December 28, Michigan defeated Holy Cross 88–66 as Robinson posted a career high with 23 points.[119]

January[edit]

In the January 2 Big Ten Conference opener against Minnesota, Michigan won its fifth consecutive game against Minnesota and 5th consecutive game at the Williams Arena.[120][121] After winning two games by a combined 50 points last year, Michigan beat Northwestern 74–51 to mark its sixth straight victory over the Wildcats.[122] Michigan gave Nebraska its first loss in the new Pinnacle Bank Arena on January 9,[123] giving Michigan its first 5-game win streak since the 2013 NCAA tournament.[124] By beating Penn State on January 14, Michigan won its first 4 conference games for the first time since the 2002–03 team won its first six contests.[125][126] In the game, Stauskas had a game-high 21 points, team-high 5 assists as well as 6 rebounds.[127] On January 18, Michigan defeated (#3 AP/#3 Coaches)[128] Wisconsin at the Kohl Center for the first time since the 1998–99 team did so on February 27, 1999 against the 1998–99 Badgers,[129][130] ending an 11-game losing streak at Wisconsin.[131] It was the highest ranked team Michigan has ever beaten on the road, surpassing a victory over #5 Duke on December 5, 1964 by the Cazzie Russell-led 1964–65 team.[132][133][134] Following the win, Michigan returned to the national polls (#21/#T25).[135][136] On January 21, Stauskas earned his first Big Ten Conference Player of the Week recognition. At the time he was leading the conference in scoring and 20-point games.[137] On January 22, Michigan defeated (#10/#10)[138] Iowa, matching the 6–0 start of the 2002–03 team and marking the first time Michigan has defeated consecutive top 10 opponents since the 1996–97 team defeated #10 Duke and #6 Arizona.[139][140] It was the first time Michigan defeated consecutive top 10 opponents in consecutive games on the schedule since the 1992–93 team defeated #5 North Carolina and #2 Kansas in December 1992.[141] Stauskas tied his career high with 26 points and contributed 5 rebounds and 5 assists in the game.[139][140] With Michigan State riding an 11-game winning streak, including 7 in conference, and Michigan riding an 8-game winning streak, including 6 in conference, the January 25 Michigan–Michigan State game marked the first time in Big Ten history that two teams have met when both teams were 6–0 or better in conference play.[142] Michigan defeated the (#3/#3)[143] Spartans 80–75. Stauskas and Walton contributed 19 points apiece.[144] It is the first time in school history that the team defeated three consecutive AP Poll top ten opponents and marked the first time since the 2006–07 Florida Gators that any team and the first time since the 1986–87 Iowa Hawkeyes that any Big Ten team has won three consecutive games all of which were against top 10 opponents.[145] It also gave the team consecutive road wins against top 5 opponents after a 36-game losing streak against them.[144][146] Michigan's 7–0 Big Ten start is the best since the 1976–77 team won its first eight games.[146] For the week Stauskas earned Big Ten player of the week and CBS Sports National Player of the Week recognition, while Walton earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors on January 27.[147][148][149] Stauskas also earned Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week recognition from United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) on January 28.[150] Michigan extended its winning streak to 10 games, tying the 1976–77 8–0 Big Ten start by beating Purdue. Caris LeVert notched his first double-double with a career-high 11 rebounds.[151][152]

February[edit]

Michigan began February with a loss to Indiana on February 2.[153] Michigan rebounded against Nebraska on February 5 with its largest conference game margin of victory, 79–50, under John Beilein and the largest conference game margin of victory since defeating Indiana 112-64 on February 22, 1998.[154][155] However, on February 8, Michigan had one of its worst performances in some time against (#17/#13)[156] Iowa. The team lost 85–67, surrendering the most points in a non-overtime game since December 12, 2007 against Oakland and its biggest point deficit since losing to Wisconsin by 18 on February 6, 2010.[157] Michigan defeated the (#22/20)[158] Ohio State Buckeyes at Value City Arena,[159] marking the first Michigan victory at Ohio State since the 2002–03 team defeated the 2002–03 Buckeyes on January 15, 2003 and ending a 9-game losing streak at Ohio State.[155] It also marked the first road sweep of Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin since the 1992–93 team.[155] On February 16, Michigan lost to (#21/21)[160] Wisconsin.[161] On February 23, Michigan set a season low with 3 turnovers and 0 points off of turnovers against (#13/14)[162] Michigan State. In the game Michigan rebounded from an early 22–11 deficit to win 79–70.[163] Stauskas led the way with 25 points on 9-for-13 shooting and with 21 coming in the second half, including 10 that took the score from a 48–43 deficit to a 53–51 lead.[163] He added 5 assists, 3 rebounds and no fouls on his way to earning his third Big Ten Player of the Week recognition on February 24.[164][165] The win marked the first time Michigan defeated the same ranked opponent twice in a season since the 2000–01 Michigan Wolverines defeated the 2000–01 Iowa Hawkeyes twice.[163] With the win Michigan (19–7, 11–3 Big Ten) regained first place in the Big Ten race ahead of Michigan State (22–6, 11–4), earning control of its own destiny for the conference title with a schedule of four remaining games against teams averaging 5 conference wins.[166] All four teams were in the bottom half of the conference standings.[167] On February 26, Michigan defeated Purdue 77–76 on a buzzer beater by Robinson (against his father's alma mater) in overtime. Michigan had trailed by 19 (27–8) in the first half and by 13 (37–24) at halftime.[168][169] The 19-point deficit was the largest that Michigan had overcome that season and the overtime victory raised Michigan's overtime record to 13–3 under Beilein including 8 of the last 9 and 3 in a row. It also marked the team's first buzzer beater since DeShawn Sims tallied one for the 2008–09 Wolverines on November 29, 2008 against Savannah State.[169][170]

March[edit]

On March 1, Michigan clinched at least a share of the Big Ten regular season championship by defeating Minnesota 66–56.[171][172] On March 4, Michigan faced an Illinois team that had held its prior 4 opponents under 50 points. Michigan scored 52 points in the first half and went on to win 84–53, while tying the school record with 16 three point shots made. Stauskas had 24 points, including a career-high seven three point shots, as part of a 7-for-9 three point effort. With the win Michigan clinched its first outright Big Ten Conference championship since the 1985–86 team.[173] It is the team's 14th Big Ten Championship and 8th outright. It marked Beilein's 4th career conference championship and 2nd with Michigan.[174] Michigan closed out the season with an 84–80 victory over Indiana,[175] that included a season high 26 free throws made.[176] Stauskas had a team-high 21 points.[175] On March 10, Stauskas earned his fourth Player of the Week honor (shared with Shavon Shields).[177] The 15 conference wins was the most since the 1992–93 team.[176] During conference play, Michigan led the conference in field goal percentage (48.8%), free throw percentage (78.0%), rebounds allowed (29.8), scoring margin (6.7), assist:turnover ratio (1.44), and road attendance (15,711).[178]

Postseason[edit]

Michigan entered the 2014 Big Ten Conference Men's Basketball Tournament as the number one seed for the first time.[179] Michigan defeated Illinois 64–63 after losing a 13-point second-half lead and getting a game-winning basket with 7.9 seconds remaining from center Jordan Morgan.[180] Michigan led most of the game, but only scored 6 points in the final 7 and a half minutes.[181] On March 15, Michigan defeated (#24/24)[182] Ohio State, 72–69. The game marked Michigan's 12th consecutive win in games decided by single digits.[183] Michigan blew a 16-point first half lead and a 12-point second half lead as Ohio State took its first lead at 61–60 of the game with 7:59 remaining.[184] Michigan eventually finished the game on a 7–1 run over the final 4:12 to win the game.[185] In the game, Morgan set the school record for most games played (137), surpassing Stu Douglass.[183] Michigan State (#22/22)[186] won the first ever postseason contest between the two teams by a score of 69–55.[187][188][189]

Michigan earned a number two seed in the Midwest region of the 2014 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.[190][191] Michigan opened the tournament by defeating Wofford by a score of 57–40, holding them to the fewest points by a Michigan opponent for the season. The victory ensured that the team would not endure consecutive losses for the first time since 1993.[192][193] Michigan then went on to defeat Texas by a score of 79–65 to advance to the Sweet 16 for the second straight season. The team's back-to-back trips marked the first time Michigan played in consecutive Sweet 16s since it made three straight appearances in 1992, 1993, and 1994. Michigan recorded 14 three-pointers in the game, setting a school record in NCAA Tournament play. The win was Beilein's 700th.[194][195] Michigan defeated Tennessee 73–71 on March 28, in the regional semifinal. They led by as many as 15 points in the second half, but four turnovers in the final 97 seconds caused the lead to fall to 72–71 in the final seconds.[196][197] During the game, Michigan broke the school record for the most three-point shots made in a single season with 312, surpassing the previous record of 305 set during the 2008–09 season.[198] In the regional finals on March 30 against (RV/#22)[199] Kentucky, Michigan led by as many as ten points in the first half, before Kentucky went on a 15–5 run to end the half, and tie the score at 37 going into halftime. Kentucky took the lead several times in the second half and Michigan battled back to tie the score at 39, 47 and 51. Michigan amassed a 55–51 lead with 11:31 remaining. Kentucky answered with 11 straight points for their largest lead of the game, which forced Michigan to use a timeout with 6:24 left. With less than 30 seconds to go in the game, Michigan tied the game at 72 on a wild scramble that included three offensive rebounds by Michigan, only to have Kentucky bury a deep three-pointer with 2.3 seconds remaining in a 75–72 final. Michigan recorded seven more three-pointers in the game, adding to the school record for most threes in a single season with 319. Michigan's 59 combined wins over the last two seasons are the most over a two-year span in Michigan history.[199][200]

2014 NBA Draft[edit]

Talks about the 2014 NBA Draft began errantly when Paul Stauskas spoke about his son to Sports Illustrated saying "He knows all he has to do is keep his nose to the grindstone for another couple of months, and there’s a really good possibility he might be able to go pro."[229] However, a few days later, Stauskas attempted to distance himself from his father's statements and apologized to his fans.[230] Following the season, Stauskas, Robinson and McGary all stated that they would be deliberating about entering the draft, but had not fully considered the decision.[231] Each submitted evaluation requests to the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee which must respond by April 14, giving the players until April 27 to make themselves eligible for the draft if they so choose.[232] On April 10, reports emerged that Stauskas had decided to go pro, but he denied he had made a decision.[233] The reports were based on rumors that Stauskas had decided to hire Mark Bartelstein as his agent. Bartelstein is the father of former Michigan teammate Josh Bartelstein, and agent for former teammate Tim Hardaway, Jr.[234] On April 15, in a joint press conference on the Big Ten Network,[235] Robinson and Stauskas announced that they were declaring themselves eligible for the 2014 NBA draft.[236] Upon learning that he had tested positive for marijuana following the Sweet Sixteen victory over Tennessee and was facing a one-year suspension, McGary also declared for the draft.[237]

Team players drafted into the NBA[edit]

Combined with Burke and Hardaway's 2013 selections, by the end of this draft every player that started in the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Game was drafted either in the 2013 or 2014 NBA draft.[238] The three selections contributed to one of the best Big Ten draft classes in some time: Seven Big Ten athletes were selected and five were selected in the first round. That was the most first rounders since the 1990 NBA draft and the most overall since the 2000 NBA draft when 8 players were drafted.[239]

Year Round Pick Overall Player NBA Club
2014 1 8 8 Nik Stauskas Sacramento Kings
2014 1 21 21 Mitch McGary Oklahoma City Thunder
2014 2 10 40 Glenn Robinson III Minnesota Timberwolves

[240]

Other departures[edit]

Horford announced on April 10 that he would use his 5th year of redshirt eligibility by transferring to a graduate program at another school. If he graduates this spring as expected, he will be eligible to immediately join another team for the 2014–15 NCAA Division I men's basketball season.[241] On April 26, Horford announced he was transferring to play for the Florida Gators men's basketball team.[242] Jordan Morgan graduated after using all of his eligibility. He signed as an undrafted free agent to play with the Minnesota Timberwolves in the July 2014 NBA Summer League.[243][244]
