NCAA Tournament 2018: Michigan’s Jordan Poole hit the same buzzer-beater in high school

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 Tournament.

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.
