After the technical fouls, TBS brought out one of the most insane stats you’ll ever see. It is also a stat that rubs salt in the wound for any and all Wolverine fans.

Although it is cut off in the photo, it says that the technical fouls were the first in a National Championship since Chris Webber in 1993. One of the most infamous technical fouls in the history of basketball.

Villanova defeated Michigan last night 79-62.
