During Saturday night’s action in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Michigan’s freshman guard Jordan Poole drained a long 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving his third-seeded team a last-second 64-63 victory over No. 6 seed Houston.
The Houston Cougars had a chance to guarantee their win, but Devin Davis missed a pair of foul shots with 3.6 seconds remaining. The Michigan Wolverines set up a final play during a timeout, after which Muhammad-Ali Abdur Rahkman found Poole on the wing, and the freshman sank the shot.
Fox News reported: The officials reviewed it to make sure, but Poole had clearly gotten the shot away.
Abdur-Rahkman and Moe Wagner scored 12 points apiece to lead Michigan, but it was the unheralded freshman the stole the show. His flair for the dramatic sent coach John Beilein’s team to Los Angeles for a West Regional semifinal against North Carolina or Texas A&M next week.
