Moe Wagner was a driving force behind Michigan’s run to a second straight Big Ten Tournament title, and the Wolverines’ forward was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.
Wagner averaged 15.8 points and 6.5 rebounds over Michigan’s four-game run in four days at Madison Square Garden. He posted 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Sunday’s win over Purdue in the title game.
“This is an incredible group with incredible fans. I can’t stop smiling,” Wagner said on CBS while accepting the honor. “…This is not a personal award, this is for everyone on the team right here.”
Wagner is averaging 14.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game during the 2017-18 season.
Wagner was joined on the all-tournament team by teammate Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Abdur-Rahkman averaged 15.0 points per game in the tournament and posted 21 in Friday’s quarterfinal rout of Nebraska.
The 2018 Big Ten Tournament team was rounded out by Purdue’s Carsen Edwards, Penn State’s Tony Carr and Rutgers’ Corey Sanders.
