Yes! Butler beat Michigan State 52-50 to make it to the NCAA Championship Game. What a great game it was. A team from a conference Not in the Big-6.
On ESPN a week ago they were talking about how the smaller schools with all the upsets are good for the first 2 rounds, but after that it should be the big name conference schools or the tournament will lose fans. I say BULL to that.
I believe Butler in the Finals and If they win it all.....this will be the best tournament I have ever witnessed. I love to watch Butler play basketball. They play the game with technique and talent; the way it should be played. And...they make free throws!!!
This year is the 100th anniversary of Hoosier Hysteria, the Indiana high school basketball championship.
Originally, there was no separation of high schools by size within the statewide basketball tournament (but a school "class" system has been instituted in recent years). That mixture of school sizes in the tournament was the background for the based-on-reality Cinderella story of the movie "Hoosiers."
How cool would it be if this 100th anniversary year could see a Hoosier Cinderella story at the national college level? I'm for it! And I'm with you - I don't see how it will cause the tournament to lose fans.
Great game by both MSU and Butler, but Butler pulled if off. Should be a great National Championship game on Monday.
Now there is talk on the internet sports sites that the Center for Butler (Howard) may Not even play tonight after a couple of hard hits to the head Saturday. They are worried about concussion.
If Howard is a no go...I see Duke winning early and in a blow-out big time. Butler will have no height to contain the Duke inside players.
