    I just have a feeling that Butler is gonna get this thing done tonight. I hope I'm right.

    Hey I know this thing is early but this pace favors Butler big time. Uconn is gonna have to get to 60 to beat Butler and they aren't on pace for that at all unless the pick it up. Not to mention that Butler has already gotten them on two over the back fouls where a much shorter Butler player just properly boxed out.

    True, but Butler needs to take it to the basket or develop some sort of mid range game ASAP. UConn is a lot bigger but man their bigs are awkward.

    Kemba Walker: driving me crazy right now, but hell yes I will be pissed if the Pacers pass on him at 15.

    If UConn gets in foul trouble they could lose out big. They are really young and inexperienced outside of Kemba and so far they aren't being a bit shy about fouling. That was a vet move By Nored to draw that foul under the basket from Kemba. What's he doing down there anyway. He got beat. He should let his bigs clean up that mess instead of going there and fouling.

    Uconn likes to play that way too (low scoring) we were essentially destined for a low scoring game.

    I wish Butler didn't do fundamental things like boxing out...I know Uconn doesn't really do that, I feel like Butler has an unfair advantage..

    Agreed, I'd like to see Mack and Van Zandt start taking it to the basket.

    UConn has a pretty bright future and could be back next year. Their bigs are sort of awkward at this stage but the talent in there.

    So far I haven't seen anything out of UConn that Butler can't deal with. They have to start hitting their shots though...

    Butler is shooting from here on. 10 minutes to go in the 1st. That's HUGE.

    one thing I've noticed, when Butler doubles anyone besides Walker that offense falls apart. Those kids can't handle being doubled.

    Seagall got away from a foul before that craziness ensued.

    Now Mack goes to the line for 1 and 1. Hopefully this gets him going.

    If that big would have caught that pass it would have been an and one and a foul on Smith.

    See? They doubled the perimeter and the guy got the ball in but it wasn't clean. Sets up a ball out on the end and then the Butler steal. They should doubleteam EVERY time someone besides Kemba has the ball.

    I missed the replay, was the pass **** or did the big pull a David Harrison?

    The pass wasn't complete ****. But Butler bothered it just enough. Made the guy leave his feet to pass it in high.
