Poole party! MI sinks buzzer-beating 3-pointer

But a pair of missed free throws by Davis left the game at 63-61 with a few seconds remaining, giving MI a chance to tie or win it.

After Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman missed a driving layup that would've tied the game with 3.9 seconds to play, the Wolverines sent Devin Davis to the foul line down a pair. "I saw everybody celebrating", Michigan's Poole said later, "and I always thought if I hit a shot like that, I didn't want to get tackled".

But at least one of his teammates, junior big man Moritz Wagner, made a detour en route to the revelry - to console and shake the hand of Houston freshman Corey Davis Jr., the Cougars' second-leading scorer who managed just three points in the 64-63 defeat. The Wolverines now head to Los Angeles, where they will play the victor of Sunday's game between No. 2 seed North Carolina and No. 7 seed Texas A&M. They needed to go the length of the floor for the score.

Three-seeded MI trailed sixth-seeded Houston 63-61 with 3.6 seconds left in their West Region matchup Saturday night. "I'm just glad we had this opportunity to come play in March". But despite playing from behind for most of the second half, U-M will advance to its second straight Sweet 16 and fourth under John Beilein.

The shot was even more hard than you thought. He made four of 15 shot attempts and went 0-6 from beyond the arc.
