Michigan’s Trey Burke hit an amazing 3-pointer to force overtime against Kansas on Friday night.  This is why you foul, Jayhawks.

Michigan beat Kansas 87-85 on Friday night in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.  Trey Burke led the Wolverines back from a 72-62 deficit with only 2:30 remaining in the game.  Burke was scoreless in the 1st half, but erupted for 23 points in the 2nd half and overtime.

Kansas guard Elijah Johnson missed a free throw with 13 seconds left in regulation.  With Michigan trailing 76-73, Trey Burke hit a 30-foot shot to send the game into overtime.  It’s ridiculous that Kansas elected not to foul.

The odds of Michigan hitting the first free throw, missing the second free throw, grabbing the rebound, and tying or winning the game are brutal.  Sure, Burke hit a low-percentage 30-foot shot, but the odds of Kansas getting hosed by fouling Michigan at the end of regulation are also extremely low.  Foul!!
