  • March Madness 2018: Michigan to face No. 7 Texas A&M in Sweet 16

MI freshman Jordan Poole added to the drama of the NCAA tournament Saturday when he hit a game-winning buzzer-beating three-pointer to lift the Wolverines over Houston and into the Sweet 16. After two passes, the ball landed in the hands of Poole, who rose and fired from well beyond the arc on the right wing and rattled in the game-winner as the buzzer sounded.

Last season, MI lost in the Sweet 16 against OR 69-68.

The Wolverines will now face the victor of tomorrow's game between No. 7 Texas A&M and No. 2 North Carolina on March 22 with a shot at the Elite Eight on the line.

With a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, MI found themselves in a huge dogfight with Houston. Cougars players walked off the court in stunned silence after watching Poole's shot swish through the net.

After a heart-racing game against San Diego, Houston had another thriller in its 64-63 defeat by the Michigan Wolverines in the NCAA tournament's second round on Saturday. Then, senior guard Mohammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman got the inbound, found freshman Jordan Poole, fan of short shorts and cats, with essentially no time left and chucked up a deep 3 - he was 0 for 9 at that point - and it hit and MI won and chaos reigned in March.

Poole's quick catch-and-release secured his name in MI lore. For 39 minutes, 57 seconds, I thought we were the better team.

A layup by Moritz Wagner put MI on top 61-60 with 1:44 to go.

The play stared with 3.9 seconds left and it followed a timeout after Devin Davis missed a pair of free throws that could've sealed the win for Cougars. Davis pulled down a crucial rebound, and then stalked to the foul line.

Wolverines freshman forward Isaiah Livers stood on the baseline with just 3.6 seconds on the clock and the Cougars leading 63-61 at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Eventually, Michigan made the title game. Wagner and Abdur-Rahkman chipped in 12 points each for the Maize and Blue.

Poole finished with just eight points in 11 minutes of action against Houston.

Rob Gray finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead Houston.
