Michigan is marching on to the NCAA Tournament championship game, and Moe Wagner is a big reason why. The Wolverines center had 24 points and 15 rebounds against Loyola-Chicago in the performance of the night on Saturday, leading Michigan to a 69-57 victory in San Antonio.
The German big man caught the attention of a famous countryman:

Short, but sweet.
Dirk Nowitzki is a future Hall of Fame selection — he is in his 20th season with the Dallas Mavericks and has more than 31,000 career points — who set the standard for international players in the NBA.
Wagner might be following him to the league soon. He’s projected as a late first-round or second-round pick, depending on where you look, and a big-time performance in the Final Four will only help his draft stock.
