Houston's band members are getting some air time during their team's game against Michigan on Saturday night.

Houston and Michigan are locked in a tight battle in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night, and every point is going to matter. Members of Houston's band are doing all they can to get in the heads of Michigan's players when they shoot free throws.

When Michigan guard Zavier Simpson has been shooting free throws, Houston's band has been singing "It's A Small World." Why?

We're not entirely sure, but it may be a reference to Simpson's height. Simpson is listed at 6-foot. We have no idea how realistic that is.

Either way, it's been coming through loud and clear on the broadcast. People are wondering what's going on.

At the moment, Houston and Michigan are tied at 28-28 with just under two minutes to play.
