A backstage look at Corey Person, Tim Hardaway Jr.'s video to inspire Michigan basketball fans

By Staff

A short video board clip of Michigan basketball players Corey Person and Tim Hardaway Jr. urging fans in Crisler Center to cheer louder in the Michigan-Ohio State game took some planning, the Big Ten Network reports.

But not that much planning.

Person, a senior guard, and Hardaway worked in front of a green screen for the clip, and it took them about 15 minutes to hash out their routine.

"We didn't want to look like fools on the screens in front of everybody." Person said, although he said teammates had fun imitating his efforts after the game, a 56-51 Michigan victory.
