Indy Pete - Go Blue

I cannot say that I saw that coming from him at all. I love his personality and energy. I knew he was respectful and humble. Yet, to do that at that moment was truly remarkable. Win with class - like a Michigan man! This team is just incredible!

Class act who gets a ton of undeserved hate.

Dude is an amazing representative of the university and I hope we get to see him play for another season.

He's approaching Denard-level awesomeness in my book.

Saw a picture of Davis standing alone at the free throw line 45 minutes after the game. Heartbreak city for that kid. Glad Mo recognized it in the moment. What a great leader he'll be next season (right?).

the crazy thing is that he went 9/10 before those two FTs.  And he started 8/8 despite being only a 67% FT shooter.  At the time I was like WTF how do they make all their FTs even though this guy isn't even very good at them.

He missed those two which is going to haunt him for a long time but he still shot 9/12 on the game which was the reason they were leading at that point.  He still shot well for the game.

For some reason coaches still sometimes choose defense over the FT contest in late minutes of college games. Defense is *always* the wrong choice, IME. Especially in the tourney, end of game with pressure on the line even the best shooters miss more than they make in college.

Very cool of Mo. And I agree with the comments that this was a little surprising. Feel for Houston, I was ready to be a salty bitch if we lost that game.

Mo talks a ton during the games, and sometime I even think it's a bit much. 

But this shows what he's made of. Talk during the game? Sure. But what class there. I'm not big into trash talk, but guys who can give and take it on the court and respect each other after? I respect that a great deal.

He should rightfully be considered one of the better players to ever come out of UM. He's like bizzaro-brave Dirk nowitzki. He took a chance on college and it is paying off for all involved.

I've been thinking of that poor kid from the moment Poole's shot went in. That was unbelievably classy, to stop AT THE MOMENT of celebration to offer some kind words. Wow.

Mo Wagner sealed his place as one of my favorite Michigan athletes of all time.
