One of the most fun games of the NCAA Tournament went down Friday afternoon between Oklahoma State and Michigan -- two teams with top-five offenses in terms of efficiency -- as the Wolverines pulled out a 92-91 victory in the Midwest Region at Indianapolis.

The battle looked settled when Michigan’s D.J. Wilson made two free throws with four seconds left for a 92-88 lead -- and also gave Michigan a cover with the 2.5-point spread favoring the Wolverines.

That was until Oklahoma State’s Jawun Evans drilled a deep 3-pointer as the final buzzer sounded. People who had OSU covering seemed thrilled with the tourney’s first backdoor cover .... but the same can’t be said for those who had Michigan at -2.5.

Not only an intriguing matchup, so there was some serious money on the game. In fact, at one Vegas book, the shot reportedly shifted more than six figures in wagers.
