Freshman guard Jordan Poole canned a deep 3 from the right side of the floor at the buzzer to push MI, the No. 3 seed in the West Region, into the Sweet 16 with a 64-63 win over No. 6 Houston in the NCAA Tournament.

A positive for the Cougars: They fouled less than typical this season.

Poole hit a three-pointer with a defender in his face that clinched a 64-63 victory for the Wolverines.

MI will play the North Carolina/Texas A&M victor Thursday at the Staples Center.

With the win, MI improves to 30-7 and advances to the Sweet 16 fourth time in the last six seasons.

The ending was deserving of a game that saw 12 ties and 17 lead changes.

MI (30-7) advanced to its fourth Sweet 16 appearance in the last six years and marked its first 30-win season since the 2012-13 campaign. With less than four seconds remaining, MI trailed 63-61 with the ball. It certainly was not their best outside shooting performance, but the last made three-pointer is the most important. Junior forward Moritz Wagner and senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led the team with 12 points apiece.

MI air-balled three 3-pointers in four possessions spanning the break.

MI is going to Los Angeles.

Three-seeded MI trailed sixth-seeded Houston 63-61 with 3.6 seconds left in their West Region matchup Saturday night.

The Wolverines have a couple of days to celebrate their big win before preparing for the next round in the NCAA tournament.

Abdur-Rahkman wound up 4 of 15 from the floor and 0 of 6 from 3-point range.
