Robert Phinisee capped off an impressive comeback from No. 25 Indiana on Saturday, as they erased a double-digit second half deficit to knock off Butler in the Crossroads Classic, 71-68.

Juwan Morgan scored a career-high 35 points, but the star of the game ended up being the freshman point guard Phinisee, who made this ridiculous three off of a busted play for the win:

This is a tough break for a Butler team that availed themselves well. The Bulldogs controlled this game for 35 minutes, answering every Indiana run with a Sean McDermott dagger three or a big bucket from Kamar Baldwin. They earned a stop on the final possession of the game, blowing up the play that Archie Miller designed and forcing Indiana into the shot Butler wanted them to take — a 30-footer from a freshman with a couple hands in his face.

The shot just so happened to go in.

Sometimes that’s the way the ball bounces.

The Hoosiers are now 4-1 in one possession games.
