The Michigan Wolverines are going to the championship game in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
  
The Wolverines ended Loyola-Chicago’s improbably run in the tournament by storming back from a 10-point, second-half deficit to beat the Ramblers, 69-57. It was Michigan’s biggest deficit in the tournament since trailing 10-0 in its first-round game against Montana.
  
Moe Wagner (VAHG’-nur) sparked the Wolverines to victory by delivering 24 points, 15 rebounds and three steaks. Charles Matthews had 17 points for Michigan, which will carry a 33-7 record and a 14-game winning streak into Monday’s title game against either Villanova or Kansas in San Antonio.
  
Michigan was last in the championship game in 2013, when the Wolverines lost to Louisville.
  
Freshman center Cameron Krutwig had 17 points and Clayton Custer 15 for Loyola, which led 32-22 early in the second half before finishing the season 32-6.
