Butler: Cinderella Again?

The Butler Bulldogs could be the 2nd straight Cinderella team after beating Pittsburgh on Saturday night. Butler's shooters were on fire starting off in the first half. Shelvin Mack had 15+ points and five threes in the first half. The score was 38-30 at half. In the second half, Pittsburgh came out on fire but Butler stayed with them until the very end. This is probably the craziest ending that you will ever hear about. There is seven seconds left and Butler makes a bucket to make it 70-69 with three seconds left. Butler's Shelvin Mack fouled Gilbert Brown and Brown made one of two free throws ro make it 70-70 with 00.8 seconds left. Matt Howard got the rebound and was about to throw the ball straight up in the air for overtime and Nasir Robinson fouled him with time on the clock so Howard got two free throws. Howard made the first, but missed the second intentionally and Butler hanged on to win 71-70. Shelvin Mack of Butler is the  player of the game and had 30 points. Pittsburgh's Gilbert Brown threw in 23 points for the Panthers. BUTLER CAN BE THE 2ND STRAIGHT CINDERELLA TEAM SO WATCH OUT FOR THE BULLDOGS!!!!
