NCAA Tournament Championship Game Thread
Butler and UConn tip off at 9:23 (Eastern Time).

Who will be watching?

Who will you be rooting for? Who do you think will win?

1. I'll not be watching.
Did Butler play in the Final last year? If they did, and didn't win, then I'll root for them.

I think UConn will win.

2. yes, Butler played in the final last year but lost (missed a last-second halfcourt shot)
I'm hopeful that this year they get the win :)

8. theoretically the pace should help Butler, but they have got to start hitting some shots
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 08:41 PM by fishwax
Only two from the field thus far, right?

17. Butler had a stretch where they shot 2 of 8 and it *raised* their percentage considerably
There has been some good defense so far (both on shots and otherwise), but that doesn't account for all the cold shooting.

22. yes indeed -- crazy intense and then there are spurts where it gets intenser still
There've been a few pretty magnificent flurries of action--but, for the most part, they haven't resulted in points ...

28. They are indeed.
In fact, they're also the Big East tournament champs. Undefeated since Feb. 5! Close enough to two solid months.

30. It's as good as any run as anyone.
5 games in 5 nights is impossible. They were the 9 seed in the Big East tournament.

22-0 in non-conference games. 9-9 in the Big East. But Kemba showed up big and UCONN has a great supporting cast.

31. What an ugly game
but a win is a win for UConn. Congrats to the Huskies for their third national championship. Congrats to Kemba Walker for a great career, and for graduating in three years.
