The Michigan Wolverines and the Charlotte 49ers will clash on Sunday in the finals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
Michigan comes into this one after one of the better comebacks of this young season so far, as they were able to fight their way back in their second game of the tournament against Florida State after being down for the majority of the contest.
Charlotte is the Cinderella of this tournament, so to speak. They upset Kansas State to start things off, and then cruised to an 86-77 victory over Northeastern after they were able to surprise Georgetown.
49ers head coach Alan Major believes his team can pull this one off, as long as they continue with a full team effort like they’ve gotten so far:
“It was just a great team effort,” Major said. “The scoring balance and the free throws were the biggest stats, along with our having 17 assists to nine turnovers.”
