The Kansas Jayhawks essentially had the game won on Friday night. They led by 10 points with 2:30 left on the clock, and they had held a comfortable lead for much of the second half.
Then, a KU collapse and an epic comeback from the Michigan Wolverines came.
With Michigan down by three, All-American candidate Trey Burke hit a three-pointer from about 27 feet out to tie the game. Kansas came down but did not score, sending the game into overtime. In the extra session, Michigan pulled out the 87-85 victory to pull off one of the greater comebacks in recent NCAA Tournament history.

SB Nation's Kansas blog, Rock Chalk Talk, was not happy. Once the game was headed to overtime, they knew the end was near.

With the two teams meeting up in Cowboys Stadium, one certain quarterback was the butt of hundreds of Twitter jokes.
Overtime in Cowboys Stadium so you know Romo is going to throw an interception— Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) March 30, 2013
What a day for Tony Romo. He got a big new contract with 55 million guaranteed, and someone else is gagging at Cowboys Stadium for a change.— Mookie Alexander (@mookiealexander) March 30, 2013
Even the rapper who has fallen off more than anyone the last five years got in on all the fun!
Trey Burke went krazeee!— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) March 30, 2013
Let's all hug it out...
