Hoops Talk

I hate to say it, but last night’s final was the worst I have seen, and I have been to more than 20. Butler’s 18.8 percent field-goal percentage is a record low, and the final score of 53-41 was the lowest since 1949, when Kentucky beat Oklahoma State 46-36.

Sunday is always a quiet day at the Final Four and this year was no exception. The coaches meetings end on Saturday, and many leave town having little interest in the final game. For example, Gib Arnold left yesterday.

It was a great night of basketball. As I had predicted, it will be Butler vs. UConn tomorrow night. It will be Butler's experience vs. the youth of UConn (seven freshmen) led by Kemba Walker. By the way, Dickie V. was 0-2.
