Butler Vs. Connecticut In The Final; Bulldogs Reach Title Game For Second Straight Year

The Butler Bulldogs disposed of the Virginia Commonwealth Rams 70-62 yesterday, and the Connecticut Huskies held off the Kentucky Wildcats 56-55, to set up the NCAA title game on Monday night.

This will be the second year in a row for Butler in the championship game. Quite an achievement for the team from Cleveland State's Horizon League.

Here is a recap of the Huskies' win from Yahoo! Sports, and for the other recap, and here is a look at the Butler victory.
