Michigan might be receiving a delayed Christmas present this weekend.
According to coach John Beilein, junior center Moritz Wagner could make his return from a right foot injury against Jacksonville in the nonconference finale Saturday at Crisler Center.
When Moritz Wagner first arrived at Michigan, he developed an allergy — to rebounding.
After two seasons, the German center has seemingly found a remedy for what was holding him back.
Through two games this season, Wagner has pulled down 23 rebounds — 18 defensive and five offensive — a total that took him eight contests to reach last year.
