On Tuesday -- the two-year anniversary of the iconic moment -- the Warriors honored the rookie guard with an Instagram post:
"I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that shot and being able to just to be in the situation that I am in now. I'm just extremely thankful and blessed so I just want to say Go Blue, forever and always, and Go Dubs." March makes memories. @jordan_poole recalls his iconic shot in the tourney with @umichbball.

"I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that shot and being able to just to be in the situation that I am in now," Poole told the team. "I'm just extremely thankful and blessed so I just want to say Go Blue, forever and always, and Go Dubs."
Poole -- who is averaging 14.3 points and 3.9 assists over his last 13 games with the Warriors this season -- helped lead Michigan to the Sweet 16 as a sophomore.
Golden State then selected the Milwaukee native with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
