Jalen Brunson had arguably the ankle breaker of the year on his way to a career-high 31 points for No. 1 Villanova on Saturday. But Butler broke the heart of Villanova fans as the underdogs walked off the court, on their sore ankles, with the upset victory. Kamar Baldwin, who was the defender that fell in the video above, flirted with a triple-double with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists.
