Head Coach Shane Burkhart and Wagner’s teammates said he always shows up in big-game situations.
”Matt’s my guy, he deserves this,” senior guard Jameer Ajibade said. “He played great for us in the sectional, every time I saw him get open and I got him the ball, every time and he delivered.”
“Mattie has always been that big-game guy,” Burkhart said. “I love him, man.”
