Michigan sophomore big man Mitch McGary gave Wolverines fans a surprise on Friday night when he showed up on the floor in pre-game in full uniform.
McGary's missed most of the season with a back injury. He had surgery on his back on Jan. 7. Michigan, a No. 2 seed, is currently playing No. 11 Tennessee in the Midwest regional semifinals.

"It's no big deal," McGary told MLive.com on site in Indianapolis.
The Wolverines are 27-8 this season after making it to the national title game a year ago.
