2011 NCAA Tournament Update: Thursday Games

Butler defeated Old dominion on a buzzer beater by Matt Howard.

Morehead State knocked off fourth-seeded Louisville with a 3-pointer by Demonte Harper.

Temple beat Penn State on a last-second shot in the lane by Juan Fernandez, merely 15 seconds after Taylor Battle hit the game-tying three.

Kentucky barely held on against Princeton on Brandon Knight's first field goal with 2 seconds left.

More updates to come.


  1. Louisville deserved to lose today! They failed to recognize the situation at the end. With a two point lead and time winding down, they should have fouled Demonte Harper before a shot was attempted. That would have resulted in a one-and-one, and the game most likely would have gone into overtime at the worst.

  2. It's all about the coach's decision. Some would have played that way. Pitino chose not to do that. And he paid for it. The big game changer was Preston Knowles' injury in the second half. Momentum shifted.
