You should never root for Duke, ever. Though in this case rooting against Duke means rooting for Bob Huggins...ugh.

I'm pretty sure whichever team wins this game will win the championship game by at least 15 points.

WVU has found an effective way to keep Duke off the foul line -- leave their shooters wide open.

"If you want to hate us because we have kids who go to school, graduate, play solid, team ball and win a lot, go ahead."
-Mike Krzyzewski



it's not northern iowa vs. cornell, but close enough for me. i am thrilled with this national championship game... two teams who do things the right way, one out of necessity, one by choice.

it's a win win for college basketball today, no matter who wins... we're either going to have a mid-major national champion, or another championship for a coach and program who refuse to sell their soul.

and that's why i'm pulling for duke here... i think butler just getting there says a lot for the mid-majors out there. and i hope stevens stays right where he is and continues to build a dominant program and not be swayed by the big money programs.

i know why duke is hated. i get it. but i love 'em. they don't sell out. if you have off the court issues... be they academic or personal... duke simply doesn't want you. if all you are is an athletic freak with no real basketball ability? duke doesn't want you. they're more interested in what you can do vs. what you could do.

i don't know if it'll really change anything in basketball... but one can only hope.



as for the actual game... i think duke wins by 10-15 points, maybe more if matt howard is out. the difference between this duke team and ones that have flamed out in the past, going back to the JJ Redick and Sheldon Williams team that lost to LSU in the final four, is how big they are. they have a ton of big players. duke's problem in past tournaments was that if the three pointer isn't falling they were done. but this team actually out rebounds most opponents, both offensively and defensively. when you have three legit scoring options in scheyer, singler and smith, senior leadership, add in all those big kids and you're a very tough out in tournament play.

Howard being available (and effective) gives Butler a chance.
If he's out, they're done.
I can see Zoubek and Singler getting into some foul trouble wuth Butler's quicker front line, thats how Butler needs to attack methinks.

I say the upset happens, Butler 66, Duke 62.

I'm not sure what's worse, Howard's mustache or layup shooting ability.

Butler might well be better off keeping Howard on the bench, leaving the lane open and hoping that Brian Zoubek doesn't pick up 20 offensive rebounds.
