No. 7 West Virginia 60, No. 22 Georgetown 58

Da’Sean Butler’s second game-winner in three days gave West

Virginia its first Big East championship.

The senior guard, who banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to

give West Virginia a quarterfinal win, scored in the lane with 4.2

seconds left and the seventh-ranked Mountaineers beat No. 22

Georgetown 60-58 on Saturday night.

Third-seeded West Virginia, the only one of the top four seeds

to escape the quarterfinals, was making its second championship

game appearance. Just like its two other wins in this tournament,

this one was close and Butler had a lot to do with it.

Butler, who had 20 points for the Mountaineers (27-6), was

selected the tournament MVP and there wasn’t much doubt about


Chris Wright had 20 points for the eighth-seeded Hoyas (23-10).

His length-of-the-court drive to tie the game came up short.
