Deonte Burton Swats Away Last-Minute Purdue Dunk in Round 2 of March Madness

Rivea RuffContributorMarch 19, 2017

It wasn't over as far as Iowa State guard Deonte Burton was concerned.

Burton cast a last-ditch effort block against Purdue Boilermakers forward Caleb Swanigan in the final seconds of Saturday's second-round NCAA tournament game, keeping his team's deficit at two points. 

Though heroic, Burton's block wasn't enough to quell Purdue's eventual 80-76 victory. The Boilermakers will move on to the Sweet 16, where they'll face either Kansas or Michigan State on Thursday.
