National Championship is Set

Last night the two semi-final games were played in Houston and we now know who will play in the National Championship on Monday night. The Butler Bulldogs withstood a furious attack from the VCU Rams to pull away at the end of the game. This will be Butler’s second straight appearance in the National Championship. This year they will have a better shot at winning it all because this is a mature team with experience being in this situation.

The second game of the night was Kentucky and UConn, which looked like early on that UConn would run away. But Kentucky made a big push to start the 2nd half and made it a close game as time wound down. It ended up being a missed shot late that sealed Kentucky’s fate and the UConn Huskies are in the National Championship. This is Calhoun’s 2nd team to play for the National Championship, last time in 2004 they won it all.

This should be a great championship game, and I will come back and break it down later today. So please stay tuned for the preview and the predictions for this great match up of Butler and UConn

  2. GO BUTLER !!! What a story that would be. So strange to have two small (poor sister) teams playing for the big prize. Not a #1 seed anywhere close. You know the Butler coach is probably the lowest paid coach in the entire tournament. Guess all those $2M a year big school coaches will watch it on TV with the rest of us. Poor baby, the President of Ohio State will have to watch too. Wow.
