Duke, Butler Save Best for Last
INDIANAPOLIS — In the NCAA tournament’s remarkable three-week run that featured buzzer-beaters, David slaying Goliaths and the most compelling Cinderella story since, well, Cinderella, Duke and Butler somehow saved the best for last.
Monday night’s national final came down to one last shot.
At the buzzer. From half-court. Gordon Hayward’s Hail Mary. That was dead on — but only a tad too strong.
Butler needed a miracle and nearly got it, but Duke survived with a pulsating 61-59 victory.
“That was not a game that anyone lost,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
Just before the final buzzer sounded inside Lucas Oil Stadium, Hayward let it fly from half-court. A rainbow heave that arced toward the basket until it banged off the backboard and hit the front of the rim. However, the cylinder couldn’t hold the basketball and it fell off the rim.
