Hate to lose one of BYU/G9onzaga tonight.
And Butler has a tough one. But as usual, they are giving Pitt all they can handle.

I love Butler, and Stevens, but man it's annoying how much their big guys flop.

Gotta do whatchya gotta do, bro!     (hear ya tho)

This win-or-you're-done pressure is the greatest thing to watch.
You can almost see some of these guys "getting it" with time dwindling down.
The real warriors really step up.

Yep. No better time of year, man. Love it.

I like both Pitt and Butler so I'll be sad to see either one go.

Big fan of Mack, btw. I think he'll carve out a nice little NBA career.

The Pullen/Taylor match up should be fun. Pullen really has improved defensively, and for a guy that didn't play much PG last season, he's really solid with the ball.

Down by 1, I prefer the strategy of fouling and extending the game w/ 40 seconds left, rather than letting Pitt take all that time off the clock. Gives you more opportunities to win. At least they have a chance now, I guess. But had Pitt made a bucket (extremely possible) with 10 seconds left, they would have been completely screwed. As it is, I still don't love Butler's chances.

Turnabout is fair play. Now Pitt with the bad foul. And this is a clear foul.

What a finish in the Pitt/Butler game. BOTH teams commit insane fouls to give the game away.

wouldn't be in this spot if they don't give howard about 5 flops per game.

Exactly ... turnabouts fair on that call. Never deserved the chance in the first place.
The Butler/Duke rematch hope is still alive!
