Jim Nantz Has No Idea How To Pronounce Moe Wagner's Last Name

Jim Nantz and two coworkers at the Final Four

Michigan is starting to break away from Loyola in tonight's Final Four contest. One Wolverines' star has been the major reason why.

Star forward Moe Wagner has been, by far, the best player on the floor tonight.

The Germany native has scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. He's dominated the Ramblers, especially of late.

Wagner has heard his name called a lot by TBS's play-by-play man, Jim Nantz, as a result of his spectacular play.

He's heard it pronounced differently basically every time, too.

"He's tried four different variations."

Some are taking this worse than others.

It is kind of a tough name to pronounce and it's understandable that someone could see it being pronounced a couple of different ways.

You would think Nantz would just settle on one, though.

Michigan and Loyola, meanwhile, are entering the final minutes of their game. It's on TBS.
