Every year, the NCAA tournament brings plenty of surprises, and the Michigan basketball team has given college basketball fans a few of those entering the second week of March Madness.
An unheralded and constantly overlooked fifth-year senior is doing things no one could have seen coming a little more than a month ago. Another Wolverine appears to be proving he has a knack for showing up under the bright lights of March.
Shots have gone in from just about everywhere for Michigan, while some of the Midwest Region's top contenders could not get enough attempts to stay down and will watch the final rounds play out from their couches.
Meanwhile, the Wolverines are alive and a bigger threat than ever to make a second straight trip to the Final Four. These four surprises are a major part of why they look like a contender right now.
