Last week, Gary Grant saw another one of his records broken as Michigan freshman guard Trey Burke passed him for most assists by a freshman. Now in California, Grant has watched with pride as Michigan has rebuilt itself -- in part because he has a lot to do with its initial climb to the top.

Grant is still Michigan's all-time assists leader (731) and steals leader (300) in his four-year career spanning from 1984-88. After an NBA career, Grant stayed in California, where WolverineNation caught up with him recently.
