Zach Edey: From College Basketball Star to NBA Sensation

A new star is rising in the NBA as Zach Edey, the back-to-back reigning college basketball player of the year, was selected with the ninth overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in the recent NBA Draft.

During his time with the Boilermakers, Edey showcased his prowess on the court, averaging an impressive 23.8 points and 12.5 rebounds over 73 games.

Despite facing setbacks in previous tournaments, Edey truly shined in this year's March Madness, solidifying his place among college basketball's elite players.

His standout performances in March Madness, including a remarkable 40-16 game in the Elite 8 and a 37-point effort in the championship, propelled him to NBA stardom.

Many had doubts about Edey's draft position, but the Grizzlies saw the potential to pair him with star player Jared Jackson Jr., adding strength to their lineup.

With key players returning and the addition of Edey, the Grizzlies are poised to make a comeback in the upcoming season after a challenging year marred by injuries and suspensions.

As Edey's NBA journey begins, fans eagerly await to see how his skills and determination will impact the game at the professional level.
