Subway Restaurants is donating 3,333, $3, 6-inch-long sandwiches to Ann Arbor's Food Gatherers food bank after it pledged to to make a donation to a food bank in the community of the team which led the NCAA Tournament in 3-pointers.
With 49 3-point baskets made during its NCAA Tournament run, which ended with an 82-76 loss to Louisville on Monday, the Michigan basketball team far eclipsed second-place Wichita State, which made 37. Had Burke's game-tying shot against Kansas not dropped and Michigan lost in the Sweet 16, Michigan would have ended with just 26 3-pointers for the tournament.
Subway delivered 555 of the sandwiches to Food Gatherers, located at 1 Carrot Way in Ann Arbor on Wednesday. The remainder of the donation will come in on Mondays and Wednesdays in the coming weeks.
