So when Michigan Wolverines freshman Jordan Poole drilled a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer against the Houston Cougars Saturday night, he did not just send the Wolverines to the Sweet Sixteen Round and the Cougars out of the tournament but also sent a number of former and active National Basketball Association players bonkers on Twitter. MI grabbed the rebound off the second miss and immediately called a timeout to set up the buzzer-beating play that eliminated Houston from the tournament.

After the game, MI coach John Beilein was asked about what makes Jordan Poole, well, Jordan Poole. "We executed it perfectly, especially from the inbounds pass. [Abdur-Rahkman] had the confidence to find me and I just knocked the shot down".

Abdur-Rahkman and Moritz Wagner each scored 12 points to lead MI, and Charles Matthews and Duncan Robinson added 11 apiece. Poole's flair for the dramatic earned coach John Beilein's team a trip to Los Angeles for a West Regional semifinal against North Carolina or Texas A&M next week.

Houston's Rob Gray, who hit the game-winning layup in the final seconds in a first-round victory against San Diego State, had 23 points and 10 rebounds. Poole has shot 37.8 percent from behind the arc this season.

With just four seconds remaining, Houston went to the line up 63-61, but Devin Davis missed both free throws.

Abdur-Rahkman and Charles Matthews came up empty at the other end for MI, and Davis pulled down a crucial rebound, then stalked to the foul line.

The close finish was hardly surprising - there were 17 lead changes and 12 ties, including a 28-28 tie at halftime.

Poole finished the night with eight points on 3-for-5 shooting in 11 minutes.
