Derrick Walton Jr. Michigan Basketball 2016-2017 BIG 10 Tournament Game Worn Shorts
These practice shorts served as the primary uniform for the Michigan Wolverines during the 2017 B1G 10 Tournament. While departing from Ann Arbor to Washington D.C., the Michigan team/plane faced inclement weather which caused them to slide off the runway. The main uniform sets were stuck on the plane so the team had to utilize their practice shorts. The challenging start to the trip only strengthened the bond between the team as they captured the B1G 10 Championship. These shorts will always serve as a unique part of history. Derrick Walton Jr. was an integral part of the teams success and was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.
