What can I say about this tournament? WOW! From Ali Farukmanesh to Heywards last second J being too strong, and Duke becoming the National Champs to the dismay of this one UNC fan. Lets try and sort this all out.
"Heres Farukmanesh for 3, OHHH! What a big time triple" Kevin Harlen
Northern Iowa upsets the outright number 1 Kansas. They are too many upsets for me to name, and I don't got that time and patience to list them all.
Lets flashforward to the final 4.
Butler upsets 2 teams to get here and play at home vs Michigan State. Howard and Mack come up big time, and the Butler Bulldogs are going to the National Championship game 7 miles from where the Hoosier movie was shot.
Duke moves on handily by beating West Virginia.
The Game for the Ages
Butler and Duke are trading shot and fouls. You know its a physical game. You can see the big men are crashing the boards Zoubek and Howard both end up 4 fouls with the game so closely contested. Whats going to happen?
Butler goes on a huge drought not being able to hit a Fg for over 6 minutes. But they are aggresive and keep hitting 2 free throws. Duke has a 5 point after Kyle Singler's heriocs. But whats this? Butlers coming back, its a 1 point game! Duke misses they are 15 secs left. There are a few stops, and its Butler ball with 3 seconds left. Will this be a buzzer beater win, or the one for the haters?
The shot? Oh its too strong, and the great tournament comes to a great end.
