|"Arizona's Derrick Williams"|
The best game so far of this NCAA tournament may be the craziest ending that I have ever seen in a basketball game. The dramatic turns-of-events between (1) Pittsburgh and (8) Butler, would not have happened had the teams not played sloppy, sloppy basketball, and taken ridiculously unnecessary fouls. Nevertheless, it made for a game to remember. Butler scored to take the lead 70-69 with 2.2 seconds remaining. Pitt inbounded the ball to Gilbert Brown who is fouled at halfcourt by Shelvin Mack with 1.4 seconds to go. Brown makes the first, but misses the second and Matt Howard is there for the rebound, which he catches and releases in one motion to draw a foul call with the game tied at 70, and only 0.8 seconds on the clock. Butler sealed the win with a free-throw 71-70, in a classic finish.
