INDIANAPOLIS -- Did the offensive foul in the final seconds of overtime in the Wisconsin-Arizona game look familiar?

To at least a couple fan bases, it probably did.

It certainly did to one of the NCAA tournament's most valuable players.

Just seconds after Arizona's Nick Johnson was called for an offensive foul with 3.2 seconds left in overtime of the West Regional final and his team down one point, Michigan's Jordan Morgan put out a tweet.

Morgan took a charge in the final 7 seconds against Tennessee's Jarnell Stokes Friday night in the Midwest Regional semifinals with Michigan leading by one point. The Vols had rallied from 15 down.

Michigan won by two. Morgan had 15 points and made big plays at both ends even before the charge.

Tennessee fans in Lucas Oil Stadium booed the officials of that game off the floor to the point that extra security was summoned to the Tennessee section.

It's a tough game. And often a very close one. Johnson ended up not getting a shot off in time on the final possession as Wisconsin advanced to the Final Four. Morgan and Michigan will try to follow suit, and advance to play the Badgers, on Sunday afternoon vs. Kentucky.
