NEW YORK (AP) -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 that.
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.
