The omen was very good for this championship game. 20 years ago was the inguaural Big Ten Tournament. Michigan defeated 3 seed Purdue, 76-67 with center Robert Traylor named MVP.
Well, 20 years after that Michigan defeats 3 seed Purdue 75-66 with center Moe Wagner named MVP.
Michigan had a losing record in the B1G Tournament all-time just 3 years ago. Now the all-time record stands at 26-18. Michigan is only the third team to ever win back-to-back B1G Tournaments.
Michigan has won 4 games in 4 days just 3 times in history now. The 1920-21 team, last year and now this year.
The B1G Tournament was once just a way to pick up a win or two and suffer a painful loss. These last two years have changed it all.
We're not done yet.
