They do - Irvin and three Wisconsin guys round out the top 5  - link

All-Tournament Team
Zak Irvin, Michigan
Derrick Walton, Jr., Michigan
Ethan Happ, Wisconsin
Nigel Hayes, Wisconsin
Bronson Koenig, Wisconsin


Sort of makes sense that it's players from teams which played in the final - most others would have played only a game or two. 

I think you can certainly make a case for DJ Wilson being on the list - otherwise don't see too much off about the list.

how valuable he was, how passionate and gritty he was all tournament long. One of the epic acts of leadership in the history of Michigan Athletics. 

It's funny, we were so obviously lacking an aneurysm of leadership moment and you were just WAITING for someone to take it by the reins. Instead of one moment, we got a totally different kind of epic act of leadership - Walton from pillar to post. 

And Zak totally went Batman and Robin with him. Robin SHOWED UP and SHOWED OUT in this tournament.
