Michigan got a layup as time expired in its win over VCU. Michigan didn't need the layup.
Michigan was all ready to pick up its fifth win of the season with a victory over VCU at the Maui Jim Maui invitational Wednesday.
The Wolverines had scored nine straight points late in the game to turn a 60-57 deficit to a 66-60 advantage with less than 20 seconds remaining in the game.
The Rams brought the ball up court looking for a bucket to keep the contest going after a three from Michigan's Moritz Wagner essentially sealed the game. Johnathon Williams missed a three of his own and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman rebounded the ball for the Wolverines. He brought the ball down to Michigan's end of the court and stood in front of the rim for a second before getting his shoulders square and shooting the ball off the backboard for an easy two points to make the final score 68-60 Michigan.
The line was VCU +7.
Hopefully you weren't waiting to buy all your dinner for Thursday with the payout from VCU (+7) vs. Michigan.
