Video: One year later, Trey Burke does it again

Michigan basketball fans will never forget that memorable shot Trey Burke hit in the last year’s NCAA Tournament win over Kansas in the Sweet 16.

Trailing by three points with four seconds remaining in the game, the Big Ten Player of the Year drained a 30-footer to send the game into overtime. Burke scored all 23 of his points in the second half and overtime, including that incredible 3-point shot, as Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 and advance to the Elite Eight.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, March Madness is back, and so is Trey Burke.

Now a rookie with the Utah Jazz, Burke hit a game-winning 3-pointer last night with 1.6 seconds remaining to sink the Orlando Magic. The shot came hours after his alma mater, Michigan, defeated Texas 79-65 in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, earning another trip to the Sweet 16.

Enjoy, Michigan fans!
