Michigan basketball commit Austin Hatch has survived two plane crashes that tragically took the lives of both of his parents and two siblings. In his first game back since 2011, his teammates showed their support by rushing the court following his first made basket of the game.

The team, which you can hear preemptively celebrating before his three-pointer drops, stormed the court and earned a technical foul, which his coach told the Los Angeles Times was "the greatest technical I've been a part of."

Hatch tweeted the following after the game:

As I said after the game, my three was pretty cool, but, more importantly, we're now 14-0 😎
