VIDEO: Remembering One of the Underrated Big Wins of the Beilein Era

Steve Deace

Kam Chatman only hit one important shot during his brief and unheralded Michigan career.

But he made it count.

It very well might've helped provide the necessary bridge between the Wolverines' first ascension under John Beilein to the current one. With Michigan coming off a losing 2015 following a stellar three season stretch from 2012-14, which included two Big Ten titles and a trip to the national championship game.

Michigan entered the 2016 Big Ten Tournament firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble, and given its lack of success in the event up until that point, beating top-seeded Indiana didn't seem likely. But Chatman's clutch three-pointer from the corner lifted the Wolverines to an improbable 72-69 victory over the Hoosiers. How badly did Michigan need this win? Even after beating the Hoosiers, the Wolverines still barely made the field. Relegated to the "first four" in Dayton against Tulsa.

Relive Chatman's one shining Michigan moment.

I think it's the only memorable play of his career!


That he was even on the floor at that pivotal moment is amazing when you look at his production while he was there.
