Photo: Devin Davis, Who Missed 2 Free Throws To Ice Game Against Michigan, Was Back On The Court 45 Minutes After The Game

A Houston player lies on the floor after losing to Michigan.

Houston senior forward Devin Davis missed two free throws with under four seconds to play on Saturday night, opening the door for Michigan's Jordan Poole to hit one of the craziest buzzer-beaters of all time.

March Madness, for all its joy, can be very, very cruel as well. Sunday morning, Michigan's players and fans are sky high after witnessing one of the most memorable shots in NCAA Tournament history. Houston's players and fans sit on the opposite end of the spectrum.

The photo below might sum up the heartbreak best. Houston star forward Devin Davis, who missed the two free throws that could have iced the game for the Cougars, was seen on the court, at the free throw line 45 minutes after the game ended.

It's unclear if he was practicing free throws - or if he was just trying to come to terms with what had happened.

Matt Gasper, the Sports Director at KSNT News, snapped a photo. It's hard not to tear up seeing it.

Mark Berman of FOX 26 has video of Houston guard Armoni Brooks talking about how hard Davis was taking the loss. He also tweeted a quote from Houston head coach Kelvin Sampson, who made it clear that the Cougars wouldn't have even been in the game if it weren't for the play of Davis.

Oddly enough, Davis was 9-of-10 from the line before missing those two shots.

Michigan will next get the winner of North Carolina vs. Texas A&M.
