Paige Spiranac, much like the rest of the country, was left with only a few words to describe how she felt when her alma mater San Diego State stunned Florida Atlantic in the final moments of their Final Four matchup on Saturday night.
Lamont Butler was able to get the ball and find a way in the closing seconds to deliver the game-winning shot and send the Aztecs to their first national championship appearance, 72-71.

Spiranac had a four-word response to Butler’s heroics.
“I love college basketball,” the golf influencer wrote on Twitter.
UCONN TOPS MIAMI IN FINAL FOUR, WILL PLAY SAN DIEGO STATE FOR NATIONAL TITLE
Spiranac first attended Arizona State during the 2011-12 season but transferred to San Diego State for her sophomore year. With the Aztecs, she earned a First-Team All-Mountain West selection and finished in the top 10 at the Mountain West Championship in 2014. In her senior season in 2014-15, she helped San Diego State to a Mountain West Championship.
Now, the men’s basketball team is on the cusp of a national title.
Butler finished with nine points on 3-of-6 shooting. Jaedon LeDee added 12 points off the bench and Matt Bradley led the team with 21 points.
