Victor Moritz “Moe” Wagner is a basketball player who came from Germany. He is currently playing for Orlando Magic with his brother Franz Wagner, but he is taking the center and power forward positions. Wagner started liking basketball at a very young age, and he began doing it with Alba Berlin, a Basketball Bundesliga under-19 club.

College and Basketball Bundesliga

Wagner entered college at the University of Michigan, and he caught the attention of John Beilein, the head coach of the basketball varsity team. Because Wagner is an interesting player, he flew to Berlin to recruit him to play for the Michigan Wolverines. Because he desired to study college, Wagner turned down some professional offers and pursued his education at the University of Michigan instead.

Basketball is fascinating for the young athlete, and upon entering the university, many opportunities flocked around him. He was able to compete at the 2016 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament, where they have defeated the University of Tulsa. During his sophomore year, he was included in the Big Ten Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament and they have successfully won the match against Illinois.
