Michigan continued its magical March run, beating Louisville, 73-69, thanks to second-half heroics from Moritz Wagner.

The victory also provided a measure of revenge for the Wolverines, who had not faced the Cardinals since losing to them in the 2013 national championship game. Michigan, the No. 7 seed, trailed second-seeded Louisville by six at the half, but Wagner, who finished with 26 points, found his range.

A little over two weeks ago, Michigan got a scare when its charter plane skidded on an aborted takeoff because of high winds. Although players were dinged up as they went through an emergency evacuation, they got on another plane and haven’t looked back since.

Michigan now heads to the Sweet 16 in Kansas City.
