I never had a chance to say, oh, I don't know if I'm going to be able to play again. Reporter: It was a march madness game against duke.

Everybody was down and crying and really lost and I could either cry with them in sorrow, but something in me just told me, you got to pull yourself together. I was telling everybody, let's just win the game. Reporter: Throughout these 220-some days, what have you learned? Just being humble. Humility. Everything in life happens for a reason, honestly. And this was for a reason. Reporter: His mother by his side, also learning. It's taught me to value my relationships more. Reporter: What's your message now? Now that you're back? Just keep fighting. Never give up. Seven months is probably the seven longest of my life, like, I honestly don't know how I did it. But I did it. Reporter: Back on the court months ahead of schedule.
