VIDEO: Matt Howard Game-Winner Sends Butler To NCAA Bracket's Round Of 32

Butler's Matt Howard made the game-winning lay-up to beat Old Dominion with a tenth of a second left on the clock, and just like that, March Madness is officially underway. Video comes courtesy of

Excuse me, but... HELL YEAH. It feels so good to have March Madness back in our lives.

Even though it was a pretty ugly game between the eight and nine seeds in the east region, you couldn't have scripted a closer ending, and in the end, that's why we watch. I mean, literally. The ball left Howard's hands with .1 second on the clock.

And after foul trouble dogged Butler for most of the game, we got to see a little bit of the magic that carried them last spring. For Old Dominion, of course, it's a pretty backbreaking way to lose. For fans like us, though, it's a pretty great reminder of what's in store for the next few weeks. More buzzer beaters, please.
