    The 2011 NCAA championship game will pit UConn against Butler at 9 pm ET on Monday, April 4. The game can be viewed on CBS, live from Houston, Texas.

      UcONN, no doubt. Kemba Walker has been the MVP of the Tournament and will prove it tonight.

        A good one, I would guess.  Their defense and mindset should be what puts them over the top.

            So why do you think UConn will win?

    just a hunch,, their coach is good. Kemba is little bit tired though. They can be tough as well.

        I seldom disagree with gorgeous women, but I believe according to what I just read from Vegas, UConn is a 3 point 'dog'.

            What'd you think of the underdog beating UConn women last nite?
            Looks like UConn may be on it's way down.

              The Irish - Notre Dame team was amazing last night. And if they are on with the Texas A &M for the finals, I will go for Tx of course..

    I want Butler to win.

    UConn has tough players and can score in bunches at times. They are tested from playing in the Big East. Kemba Walker is amazing, but their line-up is filled with good players. I fear they may wear down Butler.

    Butler has been known to surprise teams and they were here last year and if they can get UConn inside players in foul trouble it could make a difference.


    Go Butler!!!

        I didn't go to Butler, but I spent a lot of time on its beautiful campus when I lived in Indy.  Small school vanquishing the giant is a pillar of Hoosier folklore.

    I am rooting for UConn.  I can't believe they have never lost a game in the tournament this season.  They were great in the Big East Tournament with 5 wins in 5 days.  Kemba Walker is amazing.  I have we wins the Naismith player of the year tonight, but I don't think he will beat out Jimmer.  If Butler wins I'll be okay with it because I always cheer for an underdog.
