Xavier’s Matt Stainbrook did radio interview in full uniform.
Just because the NCAA Tournament is over doesn’t mean that Matt Stainbrook will cease to entertain us all.
Stainbrook went on NBC’s Dan Patrick Show, and even though it’s a radio show, Stainbrook still decided to come dressed in his full Xavier uniform, complete with his trademark goggles.

This, naturally, invites some questions.
– Does Stainbrook just wear this uniform all the time?
– Why does Xavier let him just have it?
– He knew this was a radio interview, right?
– Did he think no one would recognize him without the uniform?
– Are those prescription goggles, and does he wear them all the time?
These and many more questions.
Stainbrook, the Musketeers big man, captured the heart of the nation during the NCAA Tournament, scoring 46 points while winning the fictitious “player who looks the least like a college athlete” award.
More than anything, it was Stainbrook’s story that made him so interesting. Stainbrook started his basketball career with Eastern Michigan, where he was significantly heavier than he is now. After coming to Xavier, arranged for his scholarship to go to his brother, and he now makes extra money as an Uber driver.
This is partly why we love March Madness so much; we learn these very interesting stories about players who wouldn’t normally get that kind of exposure. Xavier’s generally a very good team, but they’re not exactly Duke or anything; most basketball fans may not have heard his story.
And now, just as quickly as he entered the hearts of the basketball watching public, Stainbrook will be leaving. His college basketball career is at an end. But as he said in the interview with Dan Patrick, while he doesn’t believe he’l be drafted, he does see a chance at an NBA future.
I think I speak for all of us when I say that the NBA needs Matt Stainbrook. Make this happen, NBA teams. Give Stainbrook an NBA uniform, so he can wear it wherever he goes.
