The Final

It’s hard to find a scenario where Butler beats Duke tonight.  Everything favors the Blue Devils — tradition, experience, shooting, offensive rebounding, coaching.   One interesting stat:  Coach K-Mart is in his eighth championship game, but his record is only 3-4. 

We still don’t know if Shelvin Mack is OK to go after sitting out most of Saturday’s second half with muscle spasms and Matt Howard, who’s spent the last two games in early foul trouble, may not play because of a concussion.  As good as Hayward is, he and Butler need those two to have a chance tonight.

All this points to a double-digit Duke win….but you never know.
