Michigan’s Moritz Wagner consoles Houston player after tough loss

Mar 19, 2018, 4:00 PM

In an emotional, hard-fought battle, you either win big or lose hard.

Michigan’s second round win against Houston was just that as players from both teams put everything they had into the NCAA Tournament second round game. The Wolverines and the Cougars had 17 lead changes in this game until Michigan’s Jordan Poole hit the improbable game-winning, buzzer-beater shot.

The Michigan players celebrated and chased Poole around the court as Houston players watched on, not believing what just happened.

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment during times like this, but Michigan forward Moritz Wagner took a moment to console Houston guard Corey Davis Jr., who was standing off to the side watching the celebration.

Hopefully the good sportsmanship will continue as the Wolverines advance to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan’s next game is Thursday against Texas A&M.
