  • Awesome!

    How exactly did this happen? How do you not score from the field for 11 consecutive minutes, shoot 31% from the floor, 24% from the three-point line, miss seven free throws, get out rebounded and win?? Michigan State did help with those 16 turnovers, but I'm still amazed. I was rooting for Butler to win this game yet I couldn't help but think that MSU would find a way, like they have so many times in March, to pull the game out.

    I guess when you win 24 in a row, you are also good at finding ways to win games! Let's see how they do on Monday night where they will also be an underdog, likely a much bigger one, especially if they have to face Duke.moreless
  • Wow

    Every year there seems to be a team that goes way further than it should. This year the team was Butler, a squad that was lucky to get out of the first round, and now is in the finals. We can only hope that this young squad is able to relax and just think of the Championship as another game, because no matter who they face, they will be the underdog.

    I really thought Michigan State had this one, but then the second half happened where about 5000 shots were missed from the field. Better luck next year Magic Johnson.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Jim Nantz: Nine on the game for Sheldon Mack, who just got the rebound at one end and pulled up hit the three at the other.
      Clark Kellogg: We call that raking it and taking it, partner.

    • Michigan State Forward Delvon Roe: That was probably the biggest problem with our game today. We just couldn't get into a rhythm because we had too many people in foul trouble. When you've got so many people in foul trouble, you can't play as aggressively as you would like to on defense and even on offense, you're scared to shove a guy or make a move, because you're afraid to make a foul.

    • Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo: If I was not playing, I'd be a Butler fan. I like they way they play, I like their story. They play like a Big Ten team.

      Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo: It was one of the more physical games we've been involved in. Playing in the Big Ten, that's a lot to say.

    • Butler Guard-Forward Gordon Hayward: We've been talking about the next game all year, and it's great to be able to say the next game's for a national championship.

      (on going almost 11 minutes during the second half without a field goal)
      Butler Guard-Forward Gordon Hayward: It did seem like it was a long time. But for us, as long as we guard, we feel like we can be in the game. That's what we've tried to do all year.
