Who Is...Chris Hill?

He's Michigan State's 6'3" sophomore star, and at week's end he was ranked in the Big Ten's top 10 in seven statistical categories, including scoring (eighth, 16.0 points a game), steals (tied for second, 2.0), assists (seventh, 4.3) and three-point percentage (fourth, .448), despite playing out of position at point guard. The Indianapolis-area native is also among the top players in the conference in grade-point average (3.89, major undecided), football prowess (he was a record-setting quarterback at Lawrence North High) and golfing ability (he shoots in the low 80s). Here are Hill's thoughts on some of his pursuits and goals.

Favorite basketball player: Michael Jordan. "I always rooted for the Bulls when I was growing up, and I love the way he competes."

On the Augusta National controversy: "I think women should be allowed as members, but I don't think it's fair to ask individual players like Tiger to take a stand."

Favorite book: Hannibal, by Thomas Harris.

Dream date: Halle Berry. "She's the most beautiful woman in the world, and I'd love to know what she's like in person."

Person I'd most like to meet: Muhammad Ali.

Tattoos: None. "It's not that I'm afraid of the pain, I just have never gotten into that look."

Favorite teacher: Mrs. Muench, second grade, Indian Creek Elementary, Indianapolis. "She was a real small woman, but she always had a smile on her face. She made it fun to learn."
