Tonight, the eighth-ranked Villanova Wildcats are at home taking on the Butler Bulldogs in a Big East contest, and while the Wildcats went into the half with a comfortable lead over their foes, it wasn’t without some drama from Butler.

With time winding down in the first 20 minutes, Butler used an incredible hail mary in bounds play that was tipped by the Villanova defenders and went right into the hands of Kellen Dunham, who got the three points with the clock expiring.

It brought Butler just a little bit closer, but still they’re a far way from winning this game with a whole second half to play.

But still, that doesn’t discredit how great of a play this really is.
