Lamont Butler scored just nine points for San Diego State basketball in their Final Four showdown with Florida Atlantic. However, two of those are the most important, so much so that even the likes of De'Aaron Fox and several other NBA stars are left in awe.

Butler drained the game-winning jumper for the Aztecs as they completed their comeback against the Owls and secured a narrow 72-71 win. With less than 10 seconds remaining in the game and San Diego State trailing Florida Atlantic 71-70, Brian Dutcher's men had one last shot to win the contest. Butler proceeded to bring the ball to their side of the court and then took matters into his own hands, using his dribbling to create some separation from his defender before hitting the game-winner.

Of course it sent the whole basketball world into a frenzy, with several NBA players unable to hold back in expressing their disbelief over what happened.

Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox was among the first players to react, tweeting “Big time f***ing shot Lamont!”

Indiana Pacers sharpshooter Buddy Hield could only say “Wow,” while Toronto Raptors guard Malachi Flynn exclaimed “LAMONT MF BUTLER!!!”
