The call involved Clippers point guard Chris Paul who lost the ball out of bounds with 18.9 seconds to go in the game. Golden State was leading 107-105  and eventually won 109-105.

the NBA’s president for basketball operations Rod Thorn said in a statement that Draymond Green of the Warriors should have been whistled for a foul, which Paul would have been given a chance to shoot two free throws.

All of college basketball’s favorite programs are out of the NCAA tournament; Syracuse, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Ohio State and Georgetown to name a few.

But Mid-major power Butler University of the Horizon League is still standing and will be playing in “the next game” which has been their theme all year, the National Championship Game against the Duke Blue Devils¬† who beat West Virginia, 78-57.

The State of Indiana’s latest version of the movie “Hoosiers” is playing out as Butler has shown that a small Mid-major university can dream big and play for a championship.

Gordon Hayward had 19 points and nine rebounds, including one with 2 seconds remaining left that sealed the game. The small-school Bulldogs took down another big-name in college basketball, Michigan State by a 52-50 score in the Final Four in Indianapolis, Indiana, Butler’s hometown.

The venue was Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, is 6 miles from Butler’s campus on the north end of town around Meridian and 49th Street.

Butler (33-4) and winners of 25 games in a row, will play Duke (34-5) in Monday’s title game.

The entire Hoosier state is along on the bandwagon. Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame are the state of Indiana’s benchmark universities when it comes to college basketball but Butler, a small school of 4,200 has silently been in the Top 25 polls for years and has produced some solid basketball coaches over recent years in Barry Collier, Thad Matta, Todd Lickliter and now Brad Stevens. They have given college basketball fans a glimpse that the Horizon League is a quality league.

Michigan State (28-9) had been playing on the edge all tournament, after being hampered by injuries and sneaking by game after game but not against the scrappy Bulldogs who shutdown all of their scorers, Draymond Green, Durrell Summers and Raymar Morgan.
