It's not often you see both Butler and Gonzaga ranked in the top 15, and going at it this early in the season. Let's just say the game didn't disappoint.  David Stockton of Gonzaga was in-bounding the ball with 3.5 seconds left on the clock, and threw the worst pass I've ever seen.  Roosevelt Jones of Butler came up with the ball and took it down the court to win the game at the buzzer.  If that wasn't enough, Jones had a game leading 20 points on the night.  Not to shabby.  Butler now sports wins over #9 UNC, #1 Indiana, and #8 Gonzaga.  It's safe to say we'll be seeing these guys in March.  Check out the video below of the game winner. Can't wait for my VCU Rams to take down these cats on March 2. Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
