That’s where Moe Wagner steps in. The forward is averaging 15 points over Michigan’s last three games, and that’s part of the reason why CBS Sports ranked the junior the No. 4 starter among the Final Four teams:
At 6-11, he’s a matchup problem because of his offensive acumen. He can and will shoot from any spot on the floor 22 feet and in and plays with aggression and emotion that has turned Michigan into one of the best teams in the country.
Wagner makes no effort to hide his aggression and emotion. He wears his heart on his sleeve, even remarking before the start of the tournament he “would hate myself, too.”
Michigan fans, meanwhile, can’t get enough of the Berlin, Germany, native. He can scream, shout and gesticulate all he wants, so long as the Wolverines are winning. And that’s all they’ve done since for weeks now, from the Big Ten Tournament to the brink of the program’s first national championship since 1989.
