For those that don’t remember, Hayward’s half-court prayer in the 2010 national title game bounced off the front of the rim, meaning that Duke escaped with a 61-59 win.Here’s the video:A couple of things that I forgot about this shot: Hayward had a chance to give Butler the lead on a step-back jumper with 3.6 seconds left — he missed — that looked an awful lot like the one that he hit last night. Kyle Singler got laid out by Matt Howard on a screen that freed up Hayward for that last second shot. I love Brad Stevens’ reaction to the miss. Like his reaction to the win over Gonzaga from two years ago, his arms never uncross … but he does fall to his knees as the ball bounces off of the rim.
