They beat up the Bulldogs and won the national championship tournament last night. In the end, Butler was the antithesis of the 1985 Villanova Wildcat team who shot 78.6% from the field, and only missed one shot in the second half to beat Georgetown by 2. Butler shot a mere 18.8% for the game last night.
And the final analysis of the season from the computer is complete. Here’s it’s top 10.
- Ohio State
- Brigham Young
- San Diego St
Other computers will no doubt have slightly different rankings. I’m sure you’ve noticed that neither Connecticut nor Butler appear at the top, or anywhere in the top 10. UConn finished the season ranked #13, and Butler #26.
A lot of the teams in that top 10 are pretty young, so it’s a good of a list as any for a preseason top 10 for next year.
And now my computer will sleep for a few months and pick up again when college football starts.
Congratulations again to both the Butler Bulldogs and the Connecticut Huskies.
