Butler’s Rotnei Clarke Drains Buzzer Beater To Beat Marquette At Maui Invitational [VIDEO]
Butler is just a couple of years removed from back to back Final Four appearances, both of which featured tight games and their fair share of last second heroics. Judging by the finish to their Maui Invitational opener against Marquette today, they are already prepared for plenty of games like that this season.
The Bulldogs, who trailed big early, kept the game close throughout and saved their best for last when Rotnei Clarke, a senior transfer from Arkansas, threw up this off balance gem at the buzzer to sink the Golden Eagles. To go straight to the shot, move to about the :30 mark.
Butler improves to 2-1 with the win and moves on to play North Carolina in the semifinal round tomorrow. Marquette is dropped to the consolation bracket, where they will get a shot at Mississippi State, who lost 95-49 to the Tar Heels on Monday.
