Freshman guard Jordan Poole hits 3 at buzzer to give MI win

March Madness 2018: Michigan to face No. 7 Texas A&M in Sweet 16

MI stayed alive in the NCAA Tournament when freshman Jordan Poole hit a long-range three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Houston.

The No. 3 Wolverines face No. 2 North Carolina or No. 7 Texas A&M on Thursday in the Sweet 16 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

MI was just 7 of 29 from deep before Poole's final shot. The Cougars were left stunned just two nights after Rob Gray's game-winning layup with 1.1 seconds left beat No. 11 seed San Diego State in the first round.

As Livers went to throw the ball in, Abdur-Rahkman curled along the midcourt line and found himself open on the right side, the same side that Poole had set up.

Abdur-Rahkman and Moe Wagner scored 12 points apiece for MI, but it was the unheralded freshman who stole the show.

Kansas was stunned and the Wolverines trampled the Jayhawks in overtime.

Davis gave Houston a 60-59 edge with a three-point play at the 2:07 mark; Wagner gave MI the lead with a layup at 1:41, and then Davis made two free throws at 44 seconds for a 62-61 lead. Charles Matthews scored 11 points before fouling out, Duncan Robinson also had 11 points and Poole scored eight. And just like Burke, Poole now has an NCAA Tournament moment, that will live on forever in MI basketball history.

MI air-balled three 3-pointers in four possessions spanning the break.

Both teams played chippy and picked up three fouls apiece in the first four minutes of the second half.

The game between MI and Houston on Saturday night was an absolute battle.

MI converted eight straight at one point to take a 57-53 lead with 3:42 to go.

Houston shot with 31.3 percent accuracy while MI had 30 percent accuracy from the field as the teams went to the half tied at 28 points.

It was the last game of the night and game that given the aforementioned sludging pace, you would have been forgiven for turning off.

Houston showed remarkable poise down the stretch, led by a pair of seniors and three juniors in its starting lineup.
