Talk about a picture that’s worth 1,000 words. This is how painfully close Michigan was to pulling off the upset over Indiana on Sunday. The missed shot gave the Hoosiers a 72-71 win over the Wolverines.

Crazy thing about this shot? Both Michigan and Ohio State fans were painfully holding their breath hoping for a Wolverines’ win, which would have given the Buckeyes a share of the Big Ten title.

The Michigan player’s face just below the hoop sums up one of the longest seconds in Michigan and Indiana basketball history.

This GIF (via SB Nation) will really make Michigan fans cringe…

And here’s a video of the final minute…
