    My keys to the second half:

    UConn:
    Needs to make sure their starters don't get any deeper in foul trouble.
    Get Kemba going.
    Don't allow any momentum swinging threes.

    Butler:
    Needs to start snagging some of those rebounds.
    Get Matt Howard involved.
    Use their bench to wear down those inexperienced UConn players.

    Just my observations. Feel free to add.

    Dear Butler,

    Matt Howard could not hit a barn with an elephant tonight. Please use him another way.

    Sincerely,

    A concerned athletic supporter

    What a BS foul. With the stuff they are letting go, they call that on Nored?

    5 point lead feels like 15.

    They call that ticky tack **** on Nored and then let Mack get mugged three time on one play under the basket. Not looking good if that's the way the calls are gonna start falling.

    Looks like that's going to be Butler's only FG in the second half.

    So, let me get this straight, Vanzant gets blocked and pushed down, no call. Napier get under the rim and throws up some slop and they bail him out? I see how this is gonna end...

    Howard needs to do more than passing the ball, somebody needs to do something here.

    call it nerves, bad shooting backdrop or good defense, but this game is like watching a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob...

    Time for Smith and Howard to try to just throw up slop and see if they get the calls.

    Lord almighty Butler can't hit anything.

    He just did. He's bumped during his motion, no call, missed the layup, then called for the foul on the rebound.

    Sadly, Butler simply doesn't have the size, speed or talent to compete consistently with the upper-echelon of teams in the tournament. That they even have gotten this far two years in a row is nothing short of a miracle.
