Jordan Poole’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer on Saturday night no doubt will go down as one of Michigan basketball’s most memorable moments, as it gave Michigan a 64-63 win over Houston to advance to Sweet 16 for the second straight season.
Trailing 63-61, Michigan took advantage of 2 missed free throws by Houston’s Devin Davis, giving the Wolverines the ball with less than 4 seconds left and a chance to tie or win the game.
The latter outcome came true, as the ball found Poole’s hands and he sank the game-winning 3 to eliminate Houston.

While Poole’s shot was incredible, there is another shot in Michigan basketball history that may be better.
During Michigan’s remarkable run to the national championship game in 2013, the Wolverines defeated Kansas in overtime, 87-85, to advance to the Elite Eight. However, none of that would have been possible had it not been for Trey Burke’s game-tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation.
After a missed free throw, Michigan got the rebound and brought the ball up the floor. Burke used a couple of screens to find some space, and then pulled up from 30 feet out, finding the bottom of the net.
While both shots will forever be remembered by Michigan and college basketball fans alike, there can only be one winner here.
