Michigan keeps NCAA tournament run going with upset of No. 2 Louisville

Michigan's emotional run lives on as the Wolverines rallied to beat No. 2 seed Louisville 73-69.

It was the seven consecutive victory for Michigan, which won the Big Ten tournament after its plane ran off the runway on the way to Washington, D.C.

Thing looked bleak for the Wolverines, who beat Oklahoma State 92-91 in the first round, as the Cardinals led 47-38 with less than 14 minutes left.

Moritz Wagner then took control with seven key points and Derrick Walton had a couple of clutch drives down the stretch to secure the win.

Wagner was 11-of-14 from the floor and had 26 points to lead Michigan. The Wolverines will play the winner of Rhode Island and Oregon in the Sweet 16 on Thursday.
