Does Anyone Know how to Shoot the Ball?

Ok, here’s the deal, UConn Huskies beat the Butler Bulldogs last night, for the National Title. Wait, I would rather say that Butler Bulldogs beat themselves last night for the National Title.

Butler shot a lousy 18.8% from the field, the lowest ever in a National Title Game. They couldn’t make a shot to save their lives, not to mention they let UConn go on a 22-3 run in the second half. Given that they played horrible, they were lucky to only lose by 12.

UConn, didn’t shoot the best either, only 35%, but they walked out of Houston with a National Title, something that Butler has failed to achieve in 2 consecutive National Championship Game runs.

Kemba Walker, high scorer of the game with 16 points, but well below his tournament average. He gave the Huskies vital scoring while the game was close. Other players that stepped up for UConn were Jeremy Lamb and Alex Oriakhi, Lamb went for 12 points, and Oriakhi had 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Matt Howard, Butler’s Senior Stud, failed to deliver, shooting 1-13 with only 7 points, and Shelvin Mack, the player that has carried Butler through the tournament only scored 13 points.

This years National Title Game has been a let down to say the least, there has been so much drama, high scoring games, upsets, everything, just to get to the Final and have a team shoot itself out of any chance to win. A good game would have been like last years, only with Butler winning. That would have been nice, and would have made this years March Madness one of the Best Ever.
