AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Tim Hardaway Jr. can take the questions in stride at this point.

Any time Michigan is in the headlines, he gets asked about having a father who was in the NBA.

Hardaway is one of three Michigan players with fathers who played pro ball, and the Wolverines aren't the only team with some famous names in this NCAA tournament. John Stockton's son plays for Gonzaga, and Danny Manning's is with Kansas.

Coaches say they like working with a family that knows the game.
