NCAA: UConn defeats Butler, 53-41, to Win Men’s National Championship

Posted by Just10 on April 5, 2011

After watching the highlights, it looks like I didn’t miss much of a game! UConn defeated Butler, 53 – 41, to give the school their third National Championship since 1999. However, at halftime of the game the score was only 22-19! Butler only scored 19 in the second half and shot a miserable 18.8 % in field goals while UConn only shot 34.5%. Kemba Walker finished the game with 16 points and was named the tournament MOP! Jim Calhoun became the oldest coach to win a men’s basketball championship and is now tied with Bob Knight for fifth most all time behind.

  1. I am proud of the character of the Butler players. They played as a team and went down as a team. They pulled together until the final buzzer, believing that one of them would get the ball to fall in. No recrimination, showboating, pouting, accusations. Who among us would play to the final second and not give up on our teammates? Not many–that’s where the character is. Describing something as ugly only says that many fans love the dazzle–and don’t want to see the work and commitment and guts of playing one’s heart out, together, despite the possibility of falling short.

    Loser?? That would be you and your Louisville Cardinals. You seem to forget they made it to a final four and they’re hngniag a new banner to the collection. here’s some advice: don’t run your mouth when your favorite team has had back to back 1st round exits and hasn’t won a game in the NCAA tourney since 2009. No one cares UL beat uconn twice this year because uconn beat UL in the game that mattered most: the big east tourney. Next year, UK will be in the same position as they were the past two years: a great chance at a final four and national title. Have fun 😉
