On CBS.  Incredible play to end 1st half.

Always a snazzy dresser, the T-shirt he's wearing is a team/school tribute. 

EDIT: Tribute info: "Project 44" in memory of former player Andrew Smith (#44), center on Butler's 2010 & 2011 Final Four Teams who died of cancer, to encourage signing the national bone marrow registery.  and today honoring his former teammate Chase Stigall who signed up, matched a 2-year-old, donated the bone marrow to save his life.  [LaVall signed up as soon as he became head coach.]
