Poole's buzzer-beating sends Michigan past Houston, 64-63

Michigan freshman Jordan Poole drained a long 3-pointer at the buzzer after Houston squandered a chance to lock up a spot in the Sweet 16, giving the third-seeded Wolverines a heart-stopping 64-63 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on...

FINAL: Michigan 64, Houston 63. Michigan wins on a 30-footer at the buzzer by Jordan Poole. Wolverines were 7-for-29 from 3 before that shot. They're off to the Sweet 16 to play the winner of UNC-Texas A&M.

Rob Gray has started to heat up and Houston's opened up a small lead on Michigan heading down the stretch. The Wolverines haven't found the range on their 3s yet, but past history with this team says that could change at any time. It's coming down to the wire in Wichita.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Zavier Simpson doing a terrific job on Rob Gray tonight. Per @ESPNStatsInfo, 12 of Gray's 16 shots have been contested. He's 2-for-12 on those. Wolverines also rotating well to collapse in the lane on his drives.

Massive call a couple possessions ago. Breaon Brady called for his fourth foul on a Moe Wagner flop — would have been Wagner's third foul.

Michigan and Houston are tied at 28 at the half in Wichita. Points have been at a premium, as the Wolverines have gone just 4-of-17 on their 3s, while the Cougars' leading scorer, Rob Gray, is 2-of-11 from the field. Even so, one of these teams is 20 minutes away from a trip to LA for the Sweet 16.

Houston and Michigan tied at 28 at halftime. Houston has missed its last nine shots from the field. Michigan has missed 12 of its last 14 shots from the field.

Michigan looks a little out of sync offensively the last few possessions. Too much dribbling and a little more isolation offense than we're used to seeing. Houston really guards.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Rob Gray struggling from the floor in the first half, 2-for-9 so far. Has buried two 3-pointers and dished out two assists. Michigan with a slow start for the second game in a row, shots still not falling. Wolverines are 4-for-14 from behind the arc.

This graph shows Michigan's Final Four chances -- and to a lesser degree North Carolina's -- varying slightly over time as Houston struggled with San Diego State.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Kelvin Sampson: "We had Rob Gray and they didn't." Gray said on the last possession, he flashed back to Houston's AAC title game loss to Cincinnati, when he missed a last-second shot. "I just wanted to come through for my team."

Houston holds off San Diego State 67-65 in West Region

Rob Gray drove for a wind-milling layup that just trickled over the rim with 1.1 seconds left, and Trey Kell's off-balance 3-pointer at the buzzer was no good, giving No. 6 seed Houston a 67-65 victory over 11th-seeded San Diego State in the first...

Houston's win over San Diego State was the program's first NCAA tournament win since the 1984 Final Four.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

FINAL: Houston 67, San Diego State 65 Rob Gray's layup with 1.1 seconds left wins it for Houston. Finished with 39 points. BALLER.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Houston has made two shots from the field in the last 13:42.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Houston held San Diego State without a field goal for the final 6:39 of the half. Cougars up 10 behind Rob Gray's 16 points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Physical first half so far in San Diego State - Houston. Rob Gray the main source of offense for Houston, unsurprisingly. San Diego State looking to get the ball in the paint and utilize its height advantage. Max Montana some productive minutes, too.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Houston's biggest concern heading into San Diego State is the Aztecs' size. They start 6-foot-10 forwards Malik Pope and Jalen McDaniels, along with two guards that are 6-4 and 6-6. Houston goes 6-1, 6-2, 6-2, 6-7 and 6-8.
