What one Michigan player does after his team wins at buzzer stuns NCAA fans

Michigan Wolverine players exploded in sheer joy after a teammate hit a shot at the buzzer to defeat the opposing Houston Cougars, but what one of the winning players then did is going viral.

Michigan’s Jordan Poole hit a 3-pointer as time expired in Saturday’s contest and his teammates ran the length of the court in celebration as some of the opposing players collapsed to the floor, but teammate Moe Wagner suddenly stopped, and in a display of incredible sportsmanship consoled Houston’s Corey Davis Jr., as he looked on in stunned disbelief.

Wagner, who scored 12 points and added seven rebounds, is seen putting his arm around Davis, offering words of encouragement as pandemonium reigned all around.

The game-winning shot by the freshman player can be seen below, as the #3 seeded Wolverines defeated the 6th seeded Cougars.

Davis took to Twitter afterwards to express the pain of the moment and apologize to the seniors on the team, before promising that Houston will “be back.”

“Turn all this hurt and pain into fuel. My seniors I’m so sorry, y’all have been nothing but role models to us & I love y’all. Our fan base we failed y’all & I apologize to y’all as well. My coaches thank y’all for installing a culture in us. We’ll be back I put that on my life,” the player tweeted.


Wagner was celebrated more on social media for his class and empathy than he was for winning the game.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
