Cougars Stunned On Buzzer Beater

Needless to say, the shot Poole's been preparing all his life to take dropped as MI downed Houston 64-63 and advanced to its 15th Sweet 16 in school history. The Wolverines now head to Los Angeles, where they will play the victor of Sunday's game between No. 2 seed North Carolina and No. 7 seed Texas A&M. There were 17 lead changes and 12 ties, including 28-all at halftime.

MI started extremely cold and made none of its first six shots, all of them 3-pointers, and only a single free throw in the first six minutes.

All the Cougars had to do was make two free throws and Devin Davis, who started the game 8-for-8 at the free throw line, was shooting.

"Once I caught the ball and turned around, I saw three defenders on me, and I heard Jordan call out my nickname 'Hum, ' and I looked up", senior Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman said after the game.

Cheryl Wray covers sports for the Alabama Media Group. Muhammed-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led MI with 12 points.

Almost an hour after the game, Davis returned to the court at an empty Intrust Bank Arena and just stood at the free-throw line by himself.

Kansas was stunned and the Wolverines trampled the Jayhawks in overtime. His second shot rimmed out, too, and MI rebounded the ball.

The third-seeded Michigan Wolverines needed a miracle to survive an upset bid from No. 6 seed Houston, and freshman Jordan Poole delivered. If he had, MI would have needed a four-point play in the next possession to win a game.

Both teams played chippy and picked up three fouls apiece in the first four minutes of the second half.

MI converted eight straight at one point to take a 57-53 lead with 3:42 to go.

Rob Gray, Houston's hero in the round of 64, scored 23 and grabbed 10 rebounds.

A big reason why third-seeded MI and No. 6 seed Houston have been as hot as any teams around the country over the past couple months has been because the play of MI sophomore guard Zavier Simpson and Houston senior guard Rob Gray, two tenacious players who haven't backed down from anyone this season.

His night would have been a whole lot better if the game ended there.

MI won its 11th straight game in the most dramatic of fashions, even without its top players at their best.

Livers 0-1 0-0 0, Wagner 5-9 0-2 12, Simpson 1-7 2-4 4, Matthews 5-12 0-0 11, Abdur-Rahkman 4-15 4-4 12, Teske 0-0 6-8 6, Simmons 0-0 0-0 0, Poole 3-5 0-0 8, D.Robinson 3-9 2-2 11, Watson 0-1 0-0 0.
