Butler in the Championship for a second straight year

Butler is back in the NCAA title game and will await the winner of the Connecticut-Kentucky showdown as they defeated VCU 70-62.

Shelvin Mack's 24 points paced the Bulldogs in their semi-final win

The game was back and forth for most of the contest, but some sloppy turnovers from VCU and big shots from the Bulldogs in the closing minutes helped Butler prevail. Butler’s ability to get to the free-throw (20 for 26) and domination on the boards (44 to 30) was the difference.

More thoughts on Saturday’s second game and a preview tomorrow.
