Weird photos highlight Michigan’s Elite Eight win over Florida

After rolling past Florida on Sunday, Michigan is headed to the Final Four for the first time since the Fab Five was at its peak 20 years ago. It also inspired a cavalcade of photos, and for some reason, the Wolverines couldn’t avoid posing for a few strange ones. And mirroring the entire NCAA tournament, Michigan freshman Mitch McGary emerged as a rising star.
