Michigan walk-on C.J. Baird is having a great day.

Michigan thumped Texas A&M on Thursday night, putting together an incredible shooting performance that saw the Wolverines shoot 62% from the field and 58% from three. Even one of the team's walk-ons, C.J. Baird, got in on the action.

Baird, in the final minute of the contest, took advantage of his limited playing time and launched a deep three. It found the bottom of the net, and his teammates went nuts in celebration.

Here's video of the shot, if you missed it late:

After the game, Baird was the one to lead Michigan's players and coaches in "Hail to the Victors" in the locker room after game. You can tell it's one of the best moments of his life. Michigan dropped video of the moment on its Twitter page:

The Wolverines will now get the winner of Florida State vs. Gonzaga.
