Just Too Painful

I couldn’t bring myself to write about last night’s game, an instant classic in every sense.  Great effort by Butler, wonderful coaching job by Brad Stevens (BTW, how in the world can Butler keep him now; he’s the hottest young coach in the country).

So many chances.  The early missed bunnies and free throws by Howard…the awful charge against Hayward in the second half that nullified a big basket…the late, missed three by Mack that would have tied it…the baseline jumper by Hayward just a hair too long…and, finally, the buzzer heave off the glass that just missed.

Great tourney, great final, too bad…Butler does have most of their team returning, so maybe next year.
