Don’t know a freaking thing about Butler University or the University of Butler, or whatever it’s called. Not the city/state it’s located in. How big its student body might be. Or who some of its famous alumni are. But tomorrow night its NCAA Men’s Basketball team will take to the court in Indianapolis to battle traditional NCAA Men’s Basketball powerhouse Duke University for the 2009-10 championship.
This is a match-up that couldn’t possibly have been predicted at the outset of the 64 team tournament . But with upsets abounding (Hello Kansas, Hello Kentucky, Hello Syracuse, etc) Duke vs. Butler is what we’ve got. If Butler does the improbable and wins (they’re currently seven point underdogs) someone in Hollywood will be making a movie about their title drive in a few years time guaranteed.
Tip off is at 7:21 p.m.
