No. 3 seed Michigan gave us a stunning buzzer-beater in the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Saturday, as Wolverines freshman guard Jordan Poole knocked down a deep 3-pointer as time expired to give his team a 64-63 win over No. 6 seed Houston in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday.
The end-game sequence came after Houston went to the free throw line up 2 points with 4 seconds remaining. Devin Davis missed both shots to potentially put the game out of reach, and after Michigan grabbed the rebound on the second miss, John Beilein called timeout to draw up the game-winning play.
Beilein and Poole both acknowledged after the game that the play had been practiced numerous times before it was executed. In fact, a similar sequence recently transpired in an intrasquad scrimmage where Poole drilled the game-winner with 0.8 seconds remaining.
The Wolverines will face the winner of Texas A&M-North Carolina in the Sweet 16.
