Comedian and director Jordan Peele is fresh off winning the best original screenplay Oscar for Get Out at the 90th Academy Awards. But he's also receiving plaudits for hitting a game-winning shot for Michigan at the NCAA Men's Division I tournament:
That credit, of course, should be going to Jordan Poole, Michigan's freshman guard, whose buzzer-beater sent the No. 3 Wolverines to the Sweet 16 over the No. 6 Houston Cougars on Saturday. Poole doesn't seem too bothered by people confusing him with Peele, however:
It's just the latest surreal moment for Poole.
"After the shot went in, I didn't know it went in," he told Jeff Borzello of ESPN.com. "I looked at the bench. I was always thinking if I hit a shot like that, I didn't want to get tackled. So I was kind of trying to avoid everybody, but I gave up and they tackled me, and it was an amazing experience."
