    I guess I’m not all that surprised nobody from Michigan is on the all defensive team but that doesn’t make it any less egregious.

    I think we can all agree that the real snub here is Geo Baker being left off the media’s list of honorable mentions.

  3. Voltron_Blue

    Franz not making that team is the biggest snub I see.

    I love the 4-in offense that first team is trotting out :joy:

  4. Guest

    Franz should be on the All-Defensive team. He was incredible this season and was disruptive. He was Michigan’s best defender on a team that finished 4th in KenPom defensive ranking and I don’t think it’s all that close tbh.

  5. Burke_Does_Work

    I know we’re all biased, but Wagner was not just good or great on defense this year, he was PHENOMENAL. The mix of on ball and help side defense that he provides is incredibly rare to find. He was snubbed full stop.
