The game between Michigan and Houston Saturday night was an absolute battle.
Neither offense could get going, as the Wolverines shot 35 percent from the field, while the Cougars shot 37 percent. With less than four seconds remaining, Michigan trailed 63-61 with the ball.
Then, the magic happened. You’ve seen this already, but that’s OK. It’s worth seeing again.

Freshman Jordan Poole nailed a 3-pointer as time expired to send the Wolverines to the Sweet Sixteen. It was Poole’s second made 3-pointer of the game as he finished with eight points.
Michigan as a team shot 8-of-30 from behind the arc on the night. Houston missed two free throws on the other end of the court to lead to Poole’s game-winner.
Michigan will face the winner of North Carolina-Texas A&M.
