Basketball

Michigan, Moritz Wagner

What more can be said about Moe Wagner?

Wagner had?monster performances like when he broke Nick Ward’s ankles… Oh, and he also had 27 points in the win at Michigan State:

In all seriousness, Moritz Wagner has been the emotional and mental leader of a very successful Michigan team that had a ton of shoes to fill after the losses of Derrick Walton Jr., Zak Irvin, and D.J., Wilson.

He also leads the Wolverines in numbers. Averaging 14.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and .6 blocks, He leads the No. 15 team in the nation in points, rebounds, and blocks.

Duncan Robinson – B1G sixth man of the year

This has been an extremely up and down year for Duncan Robinson.

Earlier in the year he was being exposed on defense, wasn’t hitting his normal jump shots, and didn’t look like he was on track for a very memorable senior season.

Now, he seems to have found his home coming off the bench.

Robinson has been on a tear of late. Just in the last 4 games, the fifth year senior lead the Wolverines over a tough Penn State team on the road with 19 points and 4 rebounds, and put up 18 points on Iowa. He is getting hot at the right time of the year.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman – All-B1G honorable mention

Michigan, MAAR

MAAR has really picked it up we approach March (Isaiah Hole / 247Sports).

If Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had started the season as well as he has been playing lately, he would be on one of the All-B1G teams without a doubt.? MAAR just had a huge game against Maryland with a 28 point, 8 rebound, 7 assist outing that put the rest of the conference on notice right before the B1G Tournament.

The senior guard has been a pillar for this squad. He is averaging 35.1 minutes per game, and if anything that should increase with the better competition leading into the tournaments.
