The youthful and energetic fourth seeded Wolverines did the inevitable and made it out of the powerhouse Big Ten Conference en route to the NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Game, before falling short to the Louisville Cardinals, 76-82

After an upsetting stint in the Big Ten tournament, many did not believe it was the year for Michigan. The Wolverines led by all star all american and potential lottery pick point guard Trey Burke were seeded #4 in what thought would be a challenging region for the underaged team. They managed to make it to the National Championship game but Peyton Siva and the experienced Louisville Cardinals, said Final Four 4 years is not enough — we want that Championship.

These guys thought nothing of it they made comebacks, pressure shoots, and blew Florida out in the road to the Final Four. Teams did not expect this out of Michigan, not by a long shot, the main thing was experience over talent.

The sharpshooting of Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway, and the phenomenal bench players helped keep U of M momentum going. The hard fight was for the bigs who had to compete against athletic and fierce post players from some of the top conferences in the nation.

Mitch McGary, a true freshman carried the load of the garbage player the whole season as and he deserves major recognition. If it was an AP Big Man of the Year — Mitch would deserve that, his relentless and soft touch down low really was the engine that held everything together while averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds a game throughout the tourney.

The heart of the Michigan Wolverines Basketball Program was tasted all year especially during the postseason. Congratulations University of Michigan on a great season! Watch the season highlights below

Was this Trey Burke’s Last Game as a Wolverine?
