Gonzaga coach Mark Few thought he had it all figured out.
Make an inbounds pass, take the foul, hit two free throws and defend the 3-point line. It proved harder than the Zags or anyone else could have imagined.
Roosevelt Jones looped behind Gonzaga's 7-foot center, stole the pass with 3.5 seconds left, drove from midcourt into the lane and hit a buzzer-beating floater that gave No. 13 Butler a 64-63 victory over the eighth-ranked Zags on Saturday night.
''We didn't have a timeout. We went into our pressure out-of-bounds set. We threw it a little early,'' Few said. ''We wanted the ball going back to the basket, just couldn't execute it. That's totally 100 percent on me.''
The Zags (17-2, 4-0 West Coast Conference) didn't need to stick around to see the video replay. They knew the basket was good, ending their eight-game winning streak.
Gonzaga got 20 points each from Elias Harris and Sam Dower, and 14 points and seven rebounds from center Kelly Olynyk.
But all anyone will reme...
