Hayward's heave rims out
2010 national title game
In one of the most compelling national title games in tournament history, Butler star Gordon Hayward just missed a half-court shot for the national title. With Butler trailing 61-59 in the waning seconds, Hayward rebounded an intentionally missed free throw by Duke's Brian Zoubek, dribbled to half court (thanks to a bone-crushing screen from Matt Howard) and released the ball just as the buzzer sounded. The ball majestically soared toward the rim, eventually hitting off the backboard and front rim before bouncing out. Butler just missed a storybook ending, and Duke earned its fourth national title.
