    8 for 50 for the game. You're not going to win any games doing that.

    Have there always been random commercials after fouls like this or is advertising ramping up as much as I think it is?

    Aren't they terrible. It's his Achilles heel as a coach..and to make it worse, typically it's the shortest guy on the court throwing the ball in..

    And the commentators are stupid. Butler playing a zone isn't the white flag, they are going to a zone because Uconn hasn't beaten a zone until the NCAA tournament (and typically that's when teams make their run at us.)

    UConn has been called for 4 fouls in the second half. This is after being called for 10 in the first 10 minutes.

    Oh look at that. They called UConn for a foul down low. Miracles never cease.

    Get out and challenge the ball. Play some agressive D.

    The talking heads crying about how 'bad' the game was, like the NCAA made a bad pro wrestling booking decision, is going to be ridiculous the next few days. So many 'sports experts' trying to be witty and failing.

    I can't believe they stopped fouling with 50 seconds to go after hitting a three to cut it to 8.....unreal...

    Butler shot 12 of 64. Sheesh.....

    Chew on that for a second. If they had shot just 19 of 64, they would have won. 19 of 64. 29%.

    Butler took 33 threes. Making 9 of them.

    At the start of the game if you had told me that Butler would hold Kemba Walker to 16 points and lose by 12 I'd have called you insane.

    Butler had an incredible run. Brad Stevens is clearly one of the best coaches in college basketball. And Butler is a legit team. It's not too bad to have the barrier that you have to cross be the national championship game.

    Uconn winning this season was just as unlikely as Butler, really. I'm astounded.

    I'm excited about a future with Khyle Marshall and Chrishawn Hopkins even though we couldn't pull it out tonight. Stevens should be able to recruit some size with 2 championship game runs in a row.

    Well, that was painful.

    It's sad Butler will likely never get this opportunity again. But I think they'll continue to surprise people and beat team they shouldn't beat. They do need a more talented big than Smith.
