Who had the better shot, Jordan Poole or Trey Burke?

The play came after Devin Davis missed two foul shots with 3.6 second remaining for the Cougars.

The Wolverines didn't have anyone score more than 12 as Moritz Wagner and Abdur-Rahkman paced MI.

Davis missed both free throws and Moritz Wagner quickly called timeout after corralling the rebound.

"In situations like that, you just kinda gotta be ready", Poole said in the post-game interview. The Wolverines won't let him get real good looks, so Gray and the Cougars are going to have to adjust. He pushed the advantage to 63-61 when he made the second of two more foul shots with 24.9 seconds to go. For an emotional guy like me, I knew if (Poole) doesn't make that shot it's us laying on the floor.

Arkansas and Butler primed for NCAA Tournament
The school finished tied for sixth in the Big East regular-season standings and enters having lost three of its final four games. On the defensive end, Arkansas only converted on one of its first 11 shots. " We've got to worry about Arkansas", Jordan said.

In wake of fatal helicopter crash, FAA restricts 'doors-off' flights
On Friday, the agency said they found no signs of engine failure or pre-impact mechanical problems. Only the pilot was able to escape after the helicopter hit the water, capsized and sunk.

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.

"After the shot went in", Poole told reporters after the game. 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.

Isaiah Livers inbounded the ball to Abdur-Rahkman at midcourt, and he took a few dribbles before finding Poole on the wing. There were 17 lead changes and 12 ties, including 28-all at halftime. They're not a high-scoring team or a team that just-so-happened to catch fire from three at the right time. "They tackled me and it was an awesome experience". Poole's 3-pointer as the clock expired turned a two-point deficit into a one-point victory that propelled MI into the Sweet 16. "I saw the light come on after I let it go".

What they are is a smart, tough and extremely well-coached group that is everything you think of when you picture Missouri Valley basketball.
