The Twitterverse caught region fever Monday afternoon, exploding with the hashtag #mcgarysonofnorris.

The pop culture reference, started by ESPN The Magazine (@ESPNMag) implied that Chesterton's Mitch McGary, the sharp-shooting freshman on the Michigan basketball team, might be the progeny of action movie and television actor Chuck Norris.

Here are some of the Mag's best one-liners:

Mitch #McGarySonOfNorris missed a shot once, just to see what it felt like. He missed a free throw once, and the ball apologized.

Mitch McGary's sweat smells like cologne. #McGarySonOfNorris

Mitch McGary would rather play with a 20-foot rim, but he doesn't want to ruin it for everyone else. #McGarySonOfNorris

Don't ask Mitch McGary about pay-for-play in college hoops. His response: "Yes, the players will pay. All of them." #McGarySonOfNorris

During a friendly game of rock paper scissors, Mitch McGary accidentally cut down the next four years of Final Four nets. #McGarySonOfNorris

The administration in Ann Arbor is thinking of re-naming the school the University of Mitchigan. #McGarySonOfNorris
