Michigan continues its dominating run to the title as the Wolverines beat Syracuse 61-56 tonight down in Atlanta. Now, the Cardinals and Rick Pitino await. Things got close there in the second half, but the Wolverines displayed a poise beyond their years.
Unheralded freshman contributed big early and Mitch McGary once again proved he is the most dominate force in college basketball. The Wolverines got up big then hung on late to earn the most improbable victory and birth in the title game Monday night.
The freshmen came to play as guards Spike Albrecht, Chris LeVert and monster forward Mitch McGary kept the Wolverines in the game by contributing 18 points and making key plays to help build the 11 point halftime Wolverine lead.
Multi-Player of the year Award winning sophomore guard Trey Burke had an off-night shooting the ball going 1-of-8 from the field for 7 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Wolverines with 13 points and Mitch McGary grabbed 12 rebounds on the day.
Not too many people expected Blue to get this far but here they are, one victory away from a national title.
At this point, there is no reason to think they are not going to get it.
Hail Yeah! Go Blue!! What else can be said?
