National Championship Prediction

3 UConn vs. 8 Butler, National Finals
Get ready! Yet another historic franchise takes on Cindrella in the title game. Both teams have made improbable runs to get here and it all comes down to this. The key for the Bulldogs will be shutting down Kemba Walker. Don't let him and Jeremy Lamb get out into transition or he will dominate. Lamb is also a scoring threat. He has stepped it up lately thanks to his great shot and speed. Shelvin Mack will have to stop either one of these. One of the reasons Butler dominated VCU was because of second chance points off the glass. This means Alex Oriakhi or another inside guy has to shut out Matt Howard or Andrew Smith from getting those easy rebounds. That might be the X-Factor. If that happens the Huskies could end up winning. If it doesn't Cindrella wins.
UConn, 62 Butler, 59
