FORT WAYNE, IN. (WANE) – Former Canterbury basketball standout Austin Hatch made his first appearance in a Michigan jersey Sunday night in Italy.

On Sunday, Hatch made a brief appearance in a 99-60 Michigan win over Italy’s Perugia Select Team. The team’s Twitter accounted sent out a picture of Hatch walking onto the court.

Hatch’s story is well documented. He survived two separate plane crashes that claimed the lives of his parents, his stepmother, a brother and a sister. Hatch committed to Michigan prior to the second crash and the school upheld his basketball scholarship.
