Grant Hill was all smiles when he was announced as an inductee for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday. However, the same could not be said about Hill later that night when he saw 6-foot-11, 245-pound Moe Wagner running toward him with a full head of steam.
During Michigan’s 69-57 win over Loyola-Chicago in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night, Wagner chased after a loose ball that ended with him leaping over the broadcast location along the sideline.
In the process, the Michigan star not only broke the glasses of broadcaster Bill Raftery, but he also managed to terrify Hill.
Here’s the video:

Wagner did not get to the loose ball and possession went to Loyola-Chicago. Fortunately, neither Wagner nor anyone else was hurt during the incident.
After Wagner safely landed, Hill and the TBS announcers had a brief interaction with the Michigan center.

After this close call, Hill and the other analysts might want to sit a couple rows back going forward.
Michigan will take on Villanova in the 2018 National Championship Game on Monday at 9:20 p.m. ET in San Antonio. The game will be televised by TBS.
