No, Butler didn’twin the NCAA Championship, but they didn ‘t lose either. The final score was Duke 61, Butler 59. Butler played their hearts and souls and guts out and to miss the mark by only 2 points is heartbreaking. Somehow, despite the 2 point loss, Butler emerges victorious.
The fact that the Butler Bulldogs came this far is simply amazing.
So Duke gets to be King of the Dance once again. Coach Mike Krzyzewski was magnanimous in accepting the trophy. But Butler gets to be America’s best Dark Horse. And dark horses sometimes trump kings.
