For 31 minutes and 42 seconds, the FAU Owls had a lead over the Aztecs. But, they did not finish with the lead due to Lamont Butler’s buzzer beater. He made history and the Aztecs are still dancing. (Don De Mars /EVT)


After the game, Darrion Trammell said this about Butler’s buzzer beater: “I can’t even explain it. It’s just different. That’s something we’re going to remember for the rest of our lives. When we are at each other’s weddings and we’re done with all this, we’re going to come back and remember that moment. It’s great to have experienced that.” (Don De Mars / EVT).

The SDSU assistant coaches are very vocal. On a regular basis, the coaches are getting out of their seat to yell commands at their team. AT NRG stadium, the bench is underneath the court, making it harder to get players attention. (Don De Mars / EVT).


Matt Bradley took matters into his own hands early on. After struggling against Alabama and Creighton, he looked to find his rhythm early. He connected on his first four shots, scoring 11 points in the opening 5:20.
