UConn wins NCAA Tournament!

Kemba Walker and Co. led UConn to the NCAA Tournament title.

The Connecticut Huskies beat the Butler Bulldogs in an all-dog final to win the 2011 NCAA Tournament 53-41. The game was an extremely low scoring affair, and UConn grinded out the ugly victory led by star Kemba Walker, who scored 16 points. Butler was absolutely awful in their second straight final appearance~and loss~ shooting a ridiculously bad 18.8% from the field. That percentage is the worst ever in a NCAA Final. Butler lead at halftime, 22-19 at the half, but were nonexistent to say the least in the second half. For UConn, their Women’s squad was favored to win the tournament once again, but their hopes were shattered when UConn lost to Notre Dame in the Final Four. Brad Stephen’s team couldn’t relive the magic of last year, when they barely lost to Duke in the NCAA title game 61-59. By the last 10 minutes of the game, it was a blowout, and the Butler fans, rowdy for the first half, grew silent. Alex Oriakhi amassed 11 points and 11 rebounds to help out Walker. Matt Howard was held to 1-13 from the field (0.077%). 68-year old Jim Calhoun is now the oldest NCAA Tournament winning coach.
