John Beilein has Michigan a win away from the national title for the first time in 20 years -- something that would have previously been unthinkable for the coaching lifer -- and has done in the right way.
Wednesday, Feb. 27, then-No. 4 Michigan plays at Penn State. It blows a 10-point lead in the second half and loses to a team that would go on to drop 17 of its last 19 games and end with a 10-win season. The 84-78 result is the Wolverines' fourth loss in seven games. That's when Michigan's season turned.

Michigan beat Florida 74-54 as Nik Stauskas became the first player in an NCAA regional final to go 6-for-6 on 3-pointers.
