Analysis: Uconn Huskies win National Championship

by:Aaron Krause

Every dog has it’s day. Unfortunately for Butler, this day belonged to a group of Huskies, not Bulldogs.

For the second straight year, coach Brad Stevens and his group of kids watched the other team celebrate. Again, they watched the other team cut down the nets, only this time, people worldwide already knew the story of the little school with 4,500 students, as well as the famous “Hoosiers” movie filmed at the now house-hold known name of Hinkle Fieldhouse. David failed to slay Goliath one more time.

UCONN Outplays Butler to Win the NCAA National Championship

A yawn worthy game in the first half of the Championship game with a halftime score of 22-19 Butler leading, Kemba Walker and the Huskies showed up in the second half leaving the Bulldogs in the lockeroom.

My prediction was that Uconn would win.WHERE MY MONEY AT? Just playing.Both teams shot horribly from the field and its although offense was horrible, it wasn’t due to great defense.

Coach Calhoun received suspension from 3 games next season for recruiting violation. Read more about it here and what other penalties the NCAA hit the Uconn athletic department with including scholarship deductions and not limited to future recruiting restrictions. Don’t look at UConn coach Jim Calhoun, who was ruled by the NCAA to have overseen a program that was not in compliance with the rulebook, and equate Calhoun to UConn. He’s the UConn coach, yes. That’s his program. Those are his players.  So who do I have winning? The cinderalla team Butler? Or the less exciting story of the Huskies beating the #8 seed?
