Nardi is a hardworking PG who want impress you during warm-ups, but when the game begins, his fiery demeanor has some comparing him to Maryland's Steve Blake. St. Patrick's Head Coach Kevin Boyle told Vision Sports "He's definitely my leader," Boyle said. "He's got the respect of his teammates. He works harder than anybody – he's a total gym rat – and his game is at a high enough level where you better believe all the kids respect him as a player."
Nardi feels his strength is in delivering the ball. He told MetroHoops in a recent interview "I feel my strength is getting the ball to people in scoring position. Delivering the ball to him in the right spot on the floor, keeping shooters in their rhythm. I need to get stronger, though. I've put on about 20 pounds, but I need to continue to work in the weight room so I can get through screens better and play better on-the-ball defense."
Distributing the ball may be his forte, but Michael continues working on his shot as well. During his sophomore year, St. Patricks had scorers and he was not asked to put the ball in the Hoop. His upcoming senior season should see an increase in point production.
The 6'1" point guard started six games a freshman for St. Patrick's 1999-2000 state championship team was the full-time first-stringer role as a sophomore leading his team to a 19-9 overall record.
