On Saturday, Michigan’s Jordan Poole hit arguably one of
the biggest shots in Michigan basketball history, as his buzzer-beating
3-pointer gave the Wolverines a 64-63 win over Houston and sent them to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA
While Poole’s shot may have been his first game-winning buzzer-beater in college, it wasn’t the first time
he made that shot.
As it turns out, the Michigan freshman guard hit virtually the same buzzer-beating shot when he was in high school.
Overtime released a video on Twitter that includes the two identical shots. Watch it below:
For both shots, Poole caught the ball on the right wing, took an off-balance, split-legged jumper and fell to the ground
after releasing it. The ball even went in the basket the same.
Poole finished the game with 8 points, 2 rebounds and 1 steal in 11 minutes. However, with a shot like that on this stage,
we think it’s safe to say that Poole will see more time on the floor going forward.
