Can’t wait for Butler vs UConn. This should be a competitive game. Vegas has made UConn a 3 pt favorite and the Over/Under is 110.
I think Butler is the sentimental choice for most College Basketball fans because the Butler Bulldogs seem to epitomize team play and have been a giant killer for two years in a row now. It is truly a remarkable feat that they have managed to fight their way back to the Finals, especially after losing their best player from last year, sharp shooting Gordon Hayward, to the NBA.
UConn has also made an impressive journey to the Finals. They are on a 10 game tourney winning steak, which includes the NCAA’s and the Big East tourney. The Huskies are a very good all around team and feature one of the best players in the country in Kemba Walker, who is arguably the best point guard in the country.
UConn should be the favorite in this game because I think their road to the Finals has a been a slightly tougher than Butler’s has been, but I also think Butler can this game. I think Butler’s brilliant young coach, Brad Stevens, is going to figure out a way to at least slow Walker and keep this game within reach for the Bulldogs.
So, there it is. I’m going with Butler for the win.
