Duke, barely

Butler misses two tough shots in last 4 seconds

April 06, 2010

Duke wins its fourth national championship and first since 2001, forcing Butler's Gordon Hayward to miss an off-balance fadeaway with 4 seconds left and a desperation heave at the buzzer to hold off the Bulldogs, 61-59. n Brian Zoubek rebounded Hayward's first miss and hit a free throw with 3.6 seconds remaining to put Duke up by two. n Hayward rebounded Zoubek's intentional miss and took a shot from halfcourt that hit glass and bounced off the rim, ending the unheralded school's run at the title one game short of a Hollywood ending reminiscent of "Hoosiers."
