Seton Hall’s dream season continued on Wednesday night.
The No. 16-ranked Pirates topped No. 21 Butler at home, 74-72, on one of the craziest buzzer-beaters of the season. Seton Hall won on a wild tip-in at the buzzer.
Sandro Mamukelashvili, a Seton Hall forward, made the winning shot. He tipped the ball in with less than a second to play off an inbounds attempt.
Game-winners don’t get much crazier than this. It even got the NCAA March Madness Twitter account excited:

Seton Hall improved to 19-7 with the win on Wednesday evening, while Butler dropped to 19-8 on the year. Both programs are in good shape for the NCAA Tournament.
ESPN’s Joe Lunardi currently has Seton Hall as the No. 3 seed in the East Region. He has Butler as the No. 6 seed in the South Region.
We’re less than a month away from Selection Sunday, which is set for March 15.
It can’t get here soon enough.
