Burke's late bucket sends it to overtime

Friday, March 29, 2013 10:02 pm
ARLINGTON, Texas — Trey Burke scored all 23 of his points after halftime, including a long, tying three-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night. The fourth-seeded Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead in the last three minutes of regulation, and Burke gave them their first lead since early in the game with another long three to open Michigan’s scoring in overtime.

Michigan (29-7) reached the regional finals for the first time since the Fab Five era 19 years ago, the last time they were in the round of 16.

Ben McLemore had 20 points to lead the Jayhawks (31-6), who looked to be on their way to a third straight regional final before Michigan’s improbable rally.
