Jordan Poole Sends Michigan to Sweet 16 with Clutch 3-Point Buzzer-Beater

Joseph Zucker@@JosephZuckerFeatured ColumnistMarch 18, 2018

Michigan Wolverines freshman guard Jordan Poole sent his team into the Sweet 16 after hitting a game-winning three-pointer as time expired in a 64-63 win over the No. 6 Houston Cougars at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.

Poole had been scoreless in the second half before his prayer was answered at the buzzer.

Houston forward Devin Davis missed a trio of free throws inside the final 30 seconds that could've put the Cougars ahead by two possessions.

Instead, No. 3 Michigan will be moving on to the regional semifinals for the fourth time in six seasons. The Wolverines will face off with either the No. 2 North Carolina Tar Heels or No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday.
