Matt Howard made one free throw with less then a second left to cap a wild final sequence that enabled No. 8 seed Butler to advance to the round of 16 and deal Pittsburgh its latest painful exit from the NCAAs.

Each team had a chance to win it from the foul line in the last 2 seconds. After Butler’s Shelvin Mack inexplicably fouled Gilbert Brown near midcourt with 1.4 seconds left, Brown made the first try to tie it.  He missed the second, and Howard was fouled by Nasir Robinson while grabbing the rebound.  Howard made the first shot and then missed the second on purpose, giving Butler the one point win.  The Bulldogs will now face Wisconsin in the Sweet Sixteen
