The 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Game.
This event will forever linger in the mind’s of Michigan fans everywhere. Trey Burke’s block on former Louisville guard Peyton Siva that was (as everyone knows) wrongly called a foul, dramatically shifted the momentum to the Cardinals at a crucial stretch of the game. Though will we will never know if Michigan still would have won if the right call was made, there is no denying that Michigan would have been in a much better position then the one they found themselves in.
We flash forward to the 2016-2017 season. Michigan has just come off a strong victory in an immensely entertaining victory over Oklahoma State in the first round of the tourney.
Now comes the day that every Michigan fan has been longing to see from the moment the final buzzer sounded back in 2013.
The Wolverines have earned their crack at Louisville and in this writer’s opinion are in a very good position to pull off the upset. The Cardinals will most certainly be the biggest challenge Michigan has faced all season, but with the way Michigan has been shooting as of late, can anyone stop them?
The time has come for Michigan to get its revenge.
