The Michigan Wolverines will play tonight for what would be the Ann Arbor school’s first NCAA men’s basketball title since 1989.
It’s been 20 years since the Wolverines last played in a national championship game. They lost that game to North Carolina. The year before the team lost to Duke.
In the two decades since, U of M has made quick exits from the March Madness tournament.
The Louisville Cardinals have been more successful lately in the tournament, but their last national title was in 1986.
Tip off for tonight’s game will be after 9.
