The Big Dance - Final Four

The Final Four final game was played between the #3 Uconn Huskies and the #8 Butler Bulldogs... and Cinderella loses again as Uconn wins the “Big Dance” 53-41. The Huskies are NCAA Basketball National Champs and the Bulldogs will have to wait for another miraculous climb up the ladder to get to the top.


Defense Dominates

It was a defensive battle. The Husky Defense was relentless and at one point in the second half Butler only scored one hoop in 13 minutes. They say “Defense wins Championships” and these stats will prove just that:


  • Butler’s Field Goal Percentage was 19% (12-64)
  • Butler’s 1st hoop in the paint did not come until the last 5 minutes in the game
  • Huskies had 10 blocked shots vs just 2 for Butler

Butler Boost

But Butler wasn’t totally dominated. There was one point in the game where neither team could score. The game was very close at the half and Butler took the lead in the second half when Chase Stigall hit a 3 pointer on Butler’s 1st second half possession.


Jeremy Jolt

Jeremy Lamb was a big part of the turning point when the Huskies took the lead for good. As both teams started playing a game of stalemate, Jeremy went on a run of unstoppable long range shots, slick drives to the hoop, and he single-handedly put Uconn up for good half way through the second half.


Bulldogs will be Back

Butler could have tied the 1985 Villanova National Champs as the lowest seeded team ever to win the National title, but they definitely lost their gas in the last 10 minutes of the game. The good news for Butler is that just to make it to the final will increase their school’s popularity and star players might end up playing for their school one day.

On the other hand, the Connecticut Huskies have now won 3 National Titles and it is very rare for this school not to make it into the tournament. Ray Allen was the most famous Husky, but this year Kemba Walker looks like the next Husky to be an NBA superstar.
