Senior guard Derrick Walton Jr. and the Wolverines showcased that they had the potential for their NCAA Tournament run throughout the season.

And with two seconds left, the senior guard got his chance, jab-stepping his defender and stepping back for a 3-point attempt.

But unlike so many of Walton’s shots in Michigan’s seven-game undefeated run, the ball fell just short, clanking off the front iron as the buzzer sounded.

Seniors Derrick Walton Jr. and Zak Irvin led the Wolverines to their first Big Ten Tournament title since 1998.

WASHINGTON — It was a moment that Derrick Walton Jr. and Zak Irvin had been anticipating for over three years.

Standing on the stage at midcourt of the Verizon Center, holding up the Big Ten Tournament trophy, they were finally in the place they’d been waiting most of their careers to be.

Three years ago, in 2014, the two then-freshmen were in the same position, celebrating at midcourt after the Michigan men’s basketball team won a Big Ten regular-season title.

That was their first time hanging a banner at Crisler Center.

Sophomore forward Moritz Wagner celebrates during a game against Illinois at the Verizon Center on Thursday.

WASHINGTON — Wednesday afternoon, the Michigan men’s basketball team was set to fly to Washington D.C. for the Big Ten Tournament.

But a plane accident derailed the Wolverines’ plans, and they were forced to fly out Thursday morning, landing just three hours before the noon tip-off and not arriving at the Verizon Center until about 10:40.

That didn’t stop Michigan, though, as it came out on fire, jumping out to a 20-point lead and ultimately won, 75-55.

Now, less than 24 hours after that victory, Michigan will have an even tougher test in No. 13 Purdue.
