Houston's Reaction To Michigan's Game-Winner Will Break Your Heart

The craziest play of the 2018 NCAA Tournament just happened. Michigan beat Houston on a crazy buzzer-beater.

The No. 6-seeded Cougars led by 2 points with a couple of seconds left and had a player at free-throw line. Two makes would basically seal the win. He missed both.

Michigan, the No. 3 seed, called a timeout and drew up a play. It was perfect.

Wolverines' freshman Jordan Poole hit a buzzer-beating, game-winning 3-pointer to send his squad to the Sweet 16. Houston is going home.

This was the play:

Michigan, of course, reacted in jubilation. Houston, meanwhile, had a reaction that will break your heart.

These images are tough to see:

Michigan moves onto the Sweet 16, where it'll face the winner of the game between No. 2 North Carolina and No. 7 Texas A&M. That game is set to be played tomorrow evening.

The Sweet 16 game time and TV channel will be announced later this weekend.
