Kamar Baldwin’s three-point basket at the buzzer gave #19 Butler a 79-76 victory over Villanova on Wednesday night.

The tenth-ranked Wildcats (17-5, 7-3) found itself in multiple 10-game deficits and scoring droughts before the ‘Cats clawed back behind Collin Gillespie’s 28 points and Saddiq Bey’s 29 which included a game-tying three pointer with thirty seconds to go.

Villanova now finds itself on its first two-game losing streak of the season. The ‘Cats are also two-games behind Seton Hall in the BIG EAST standings. Villanova and the Pirates will play each other for the first time this season on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. Great tickets are still available on StubHub.
