One of the stars of Michigan basketball's run to the Sweet 16, forward Moritz Wagner, wrote an article for the Player's Tribune this week to provide an inside look at what happened when the team plane slid off the runway before the Big Ten Tournament.

Wagner said at first, he thought jokingly about television shows that have dramatic plane scenes. But when he looked back at the rest of his teammates and coaches as the plane careened off the runway, he thought they "actually might die."

The Wolverines are set to battle No. 3 seed Oregon Thursday night for a chance to advance to the Elite 8. Wagner play a major role in the team's upset of No. 2 seed Louisville last weekend, scoring 26 points on 11-14 shooting.

In the post, 'Still Alive,' Wagner wrote about the plane crash, the ensuing Big Ten Tournament and the NCAA Tournament. You can read the full article here.
