Kirk Earlywine on Genao: "Andy has terrific size and strength for a perimeter player. He tends to settle for too many jump shots and we need him to be a much better player when the ball is not in his hands. We need Andy to be the best perimeter defender and rebounder in the league for us to have a chance to get a ring."

2007-08: Redshirted because of NCAA Division I transfer rules.
