Michigan basketball is back in the Final Four this season, and the team will try to get to the title game of the 2018 national championship game when it faces Loyola-Chicago on Saturday night. The Wolverines will hope for some of the magic Trey Burke had in the NCAA Tournament five years ago.
On March 29, 2013 — five years ago today — Bruke hit a ridiculous, deep 3-pointer which tied Michigan’s Sweet 16 game with Kansas in the closing seconds. The Wolverines won in overtime and eventually advanced all the way to the national championship game.
Remembering Trey Burke’s insane 3-pointer vs. Kansas in 2013
Michigan, of course, has already matched that ridiculous shot making during its run in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. In the second round, Jordan Poole hit a buzzer-beating triple to give the Wolverines a heart-stopping win over Houston.

Poole had hoped for a moment like one Burke had, and it came true.
Michigan’s 2018 NCAA Tournament run could end with a rematch vs. Kansas in the national championship game. The Wolverines can hope for the same result of five years ago.
