Saved by the Block!

Didn't see the end of the Georgetown @ WVU game? You missed a good one! Georgetown won in Morgantown by 1 point 58-57, but it was how the game ended that left fans booing and Bob Huggins livid. WVU player Da'Sean Butler drove the baseline and released a finger roll towards the basket as time was expiring, but out of know where came Patrick Ewing Jr to block the shot as the buzzer sounded.

West Virginia fans are definitely not happy. The are calling it a goaltend and crediting Bob Huggins for chasing the officials down. They do, however, acknowledge that if WVU would have shot a little better than 12 for 23 at the foul they would not have put themselves in that position.

What did you think? Goaltend or no Goaltend.. here's the video:

I'm going to go with Charles Rich over at the fanhouse and say it was a clean block... barely.
