Behind a breakout tournament performance from sophomore big man Moe Wagner, No. 7 seed Michigan defeated No. 2 seed Louisville, 73-69, on Sunday afternoon to advance to the Sweet 16.
The Wolverines are rolling at the right time, winners of seven straight. Six of those victories occurred following the team’s harrowing begin to postseason play.
We’ve seen nearly every victorious coach drenched in water in locker room celebrations. John Beilein, the offensive genius that he is, came prepared with some firepower of his own when he entered the Michigan locker room.
Where did he get that? Did he find it in the bowels of BankerLife Fieldhouse? Does Michigan travel with a Super Soaker?
So many questions to be answered, but the biggest one is whether Michigan can continue this run next week? They’ll meet the winner of No. 11 Rhode Island and No. 3 Oregon in the Sweet 16 in Kansas City.
