In Michigan’s win over the Perugia Select Team on Sunday, freshman guard Austin Hatch saw his first action as a Wolverine. Hatch played just three minutes in that blowout victory, but his appearance on the court represented a significant step forward for a young man who’s been through a lot in his young life.
In two separate plane crashes Hatch lost his parents and siblings, and in aftermath of the second crash doctors feared that Hatch wouldn’t ever play basketball again. Friday morning Hatch appeared on the “Today Show,” discussing his path on Ann Arbor with NBC News’ Maris Shriver.
