German power in the NCAA Final Four

USA Today

Guided by promising German youngster Moritz Wagner, Michigan have reached the NCAA Final Four.

Wagner posted 12 points as he influenced Michigan to a 58-54 win over Florida State in the Elite Eight to secure their first final Four birth since 2013.

The forward added six rebounds in a defensive-minded game, which has been a mantra of this season’s Wolverines who recorded their 13th straight win.

Michigan will face Final Four debutants Loyola Chicago in San Antonio on March 31.
