    What a fun game to watch. Everybody whiney-pooed around about the Mack call, but he fouled so call it. And the Pitt faithful went nuts on the last call, but it was a foul too. Great job by the officials.

    This has been some kind of tournament. Bad teams=Much parity=Exciting games

    I still can't believe how that game ended. I wonder what Mack was saying before the kid from Butler shot those free throws

    I'm sorry, but at what point do people start to realize that the Big East conference was vastly overrated? What more proof do we need? Let's get real folks. Take off the blinders. Great win by the Bulldogs.

    That the shooter plays for PITT and playing in the Big East don't mean jack...so go ahead and miss whichever one of these you want.

    You are 100% correct. Just because you are on TV every night in highly populated places doesn't mean you are playing great basketball.

    I was criticized on this great site for saying the BIG LEAST was overrated.
    It’s sweet to know some are now getting it.
    I was just calling it as I saw it in doing so I think I hurt a feeling or three.

    Shelvin Mack has to be the happiest of all the Bulldogs.

    So which is worse; Missing the game winning free throw, or fouling a guy that allows his team to win it at the free throw line?

    I'd say the second....especially if you all were just at the line to possibly win the game.

    I'd have to agree, and I think most people would agree that it's alot easier to not foul someone than it is to make the game winning free throw.

    I agree,was a great game from start to finish. I have seen alot of basketball, but this finish has got to be up there with one of the wildest. Was so glad that Mack and Butler won.
