We’ve yet to see a true buzzer beater in this year’s tournament, but names like Vander Blue, Aaron Craft, Victor Oladipo and LaQuinton Ross have still given us game-changing shots to remember.
Well add Trey Burke’s name to that list, as the Michigan guard completed an 11-point Wolverines comeback and forced overtime with this deep three against No. 1 Kansas on Friday night…
Burke and Michigan later sealed the deal in OT, eliminating a Jayhawks team that held a 70-59 lead with less than four minutes to play.
Ironically enough, the Basketball Gods repaid Kansas’ Elijah Johnson for his cowardly cheap shot on Mitch McGary earlier in the game, as McGary finished with 25 points and 14 rebounds for Michigan while Johnson embarrassingly passed up the chance for an easy game-tying layup at the end of overtime to kick it out to a teammate on the three-point line (I’m assuming Johnson thought his team was down three, which is just inexcusable in that situation).
