Butler erases 13-point deficit, upsets No. 8 Creighton in OT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Butler coach LaVall Jordan challenged Aaron Thompson on Saturday. The senior guard responded just as Jordan envisioned.

Thompson scored 17 points, found Bryce Nze for the go-ahead layup with 68 seconds left in overtime, and played shutdown defense late to help the Bulldogs overcome a 13-point deficit and upset No. 8 Creighton 70-66.

"It's the one we won today, so it's the most satisfying (win) we've gotten," Thompson said. "It was just about our energy. Coach got on us about changing our attitude, and then we kind of flipped the script on them."
