What went wrong for Michigan, especially in crunch time, vs. UCLA
Michigan missed its final eight shots against UCLA on Tuesday. UCLA didn’t score during that three-minute stretch, meaning any of those shots listed would have given Michigan the lead. The next two Michigan shots were 3s, both after timeouts: Smith went coast to coast and misfired. After Michigan inbounded from under the UCLA basket with half a second left, Wagner misfired from the left wing at the buzzer. One came at the end of the first half at Wisconsin, a game Michigan came back to win.mlive.com

After everything else fans weathered throughout this wacky season, a few more days might finally deliver a national championship game worth the wait.
