Butler beat Gonzaga 64-63 on Saturday night at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis in incredible fashion. Butler was down by one with 3.5 seconds left and Gonzaga taking out the ball near mid-court. Junior guard David Stockton — son of Basketball Hall of Famer John Stockton — lobbed a high pass that was caught by Butler forward Roosevelt Jones. Jones raced across the court and around a defender to attempt a shot. He threw up a runner from just inside the free throw line with 0.1 seconds left, and it went in to give Butler a stunning 64-63 win at the buzzer. The fans stormed the floor, while a shocked Gonzaga teamed sulked off the court. The referees reviewed the play to make sure that Jones, who led his team with 20 points, got the shot off in time. As you can see in the screenshot below, Jones did. The ball is out of his hand with 0.1 seconds left and before the backboard flashed in red: Sure, Jones got away with pushing Kelly Olynyk in order to get the steal, but who’s keeping track? The win was probably a huge relief for Butler’s Alex Barlow, who traveled on the previous possession to turn the ball over the Gonzaga.
