Not only will Chang be around for the tourney's second weekend — a claim WIggins or Parker can't boast — he's already the first March Madness star to make a late-night TV appearance. Chang sat in with the band on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, answering questions from the host before playing.
What we learned: Chang is 22 years old, majors in mechanical engineering and also plays other percussion instruments. Asked by Kimmel if playing the cowbell was a demotion, Chang showed some comedic chops by masterfully replying "Does this look like a demotion?"
Chang, of course, first grabbed everyone's attention with his manic, Gene Frenkle-type striking during Stanford's upset of second-seeded Kansas on Sunday afternoon. With Kimmel now in his rear-view mirror, he'll have the spotlight once again on Thursday as Stanford travels to Memphis to take on Dayton in a Sweet 16 matchup.
