Sportsman of the Week Ending 4/2/2023
One game and one shot defined the Final Four in Houston as a thrilling contest came to a conclusion after the buzzer as the ball tickled the bottom of the net. San Diego State had trailed their matchup with Florida Atlantic since about midway in the first half by as many as 13 as it seemed the 3-loss Owls were headed to the National Championship final. Until they weren't. Holding FAU without a score for 3 minutes to pull near even in the last four, the Aztecs set themselves up for success. And Lamont Butler delivered. Deciding not to foul, SDSU got the ball with six second left and that was enough for Butler. Opting not to call a timeout (which can more help the defense set up than the offense), Butler took the ball from the rebounder and dribbled down. Left. Right. In. Back. Jumper. Called Game. Just like we all dream of doing on the playgrounds growing up. And Butler wasn't their leading scorer just the guy who was ready for the big moment. And is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
