#7 Michigan upset #2 Louisville in the Round of 32 73-69 after rallying back from an eight-point halftime deficit.

The Wolverines cut into the Cardinals’ with 15 minutes left to play in the second half and tied the score at 51 in the nine-minute mark after heating up to an 11-2 run.

Moritz Wagner set a new career-high 26 points to lead the Wolverines while Donavan Mitchell had 19 points to lead the Cardinals.

With their seventh straight victory, Michigan advances to the Sweet 16 since the team plane slid off the runway on the way to the Big Ten Tournament in Washington, D.C. in early March.

The Wolverines will face the winner of the Oregon-Rhode Island game.
