Gonzaga vs. Butler

Butler and Gonzaga would have a wild ride in this game. There would be 6 lead changes in just the last 2 minutes. It would start with Gonzaga down 57-58 with only 1:51 seconds left in the game. Then the back and forth would start. Gonzaga would regain the lead when Kelly Olynyk would make two free throws leaving :04 seconds on the clock. Then after a Butler turnover Gonzaga's David Stockton would make a terrible inbound pass and it would be stolen by Roosevelt Jones who would then take the ball up the court and make a buzzer beating fade-away for the lead.

Gonzaga was being carried all game to the fourth quarter by forward Elias Harris who had 7 boards and 20 points which would tie for the most in the game. On the Butler side it would be Roosevelt Jones who had 20 points also and 5 rebounds. He only had one steal, but it was a very important one. The one that would win the game.
