Mikal Bridges somehow finishes this one-handed putback dunk

Did Josh Hart travel? 

That's one question to ask on a critical play on Sunday night in No. 11 Villanova's 60-55 win over No. 18 Butler. But maybe the bigger question is, "How did Mikal Bridges finish this one-handed putback dunk?" 

Bridges cleaned up Hart's miss, which put the Wildcats up 44-41 with under eight minutes to play. The 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman had seven points off the bench.  

Villanova held Butler to its lowest point total of the season. Daniel Ochefu's two made free throws with 12 seconds remaining kept the Wildcats from also hitting a season low offensively. 

"This game came down to defense, which is at the core of each of these teams. I love it," Villanova head coach Jay Wright said in the postgame press conference, per the Associated Press. 

Villanova hosts Butler for a rematch on Feb. 20. 

The Wildcats return home to face Marquette on Wednesday for an 8:30 p.m. EST tip on FS1. Butler, which drops to 1-3 in the Big East, is off until Saturday, as St. John's comes to Hinkle for a noon start on FS1.
