Kyryl Natyazhko made a trip to Europe this summer and has come back as a player that has improved a ton.
Kyryl, if you look at the numbers he posted in the European championships that he played in, there's a reason why he was on the all-tournament team," Sean Miller said.
"He led his country to heights they hadn't had before, and he left with great confidence."
While he has been bothered by a back condition, Natyazhko has still been able to show total improvement.
"Up until that point, you could really notice he was more sure of himself, and like a lot of big guys in college, that improvement from a year to the next can really be dramatic," Miller said.
"I have great confidence that Kyryl will be a better player as a sophomore."
