Michigan's Jordan Poole Hits Buzzer-Beating 3-Pointer To Knock Off Houston

Michigan players watching Jordan Poole's final shot.

Michigan freshman Jordan Poole just hit one of the most incredible shots in NCAA Tournament history.

If you stayed up to watch the final NCAA Tournament game of Saturday night, you were greatly rewarded. Michigan just knocked off Houston, 64-63, on one of the most incredible buzzer-beaters in the event's history.

Michigan trailed 63-61 with four seconds to play after Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rakhman failed to convert a layup. But Houston's Devin Davis missed two ensuing free throws, giving the ball back to the Wolverines.

Abdur-Rakhman caught the ball just shy of mid-court, then found Poole near the three-point line. Poole drained it, despite barely having any time to get the shot off.

Poole scored eight points during the contest - but that bucket was the only shot he hit in the second half. Pretty amazing.

Michigan next gets the winner of Texas A&M vs. North Carolina in the Sweet 16.
