UConn Beats Butler for National Title!

The Quickie Jinx strikes again. That was an amazing, historic run by UConn -- 5 straight in the Big East Tournament, then 6 straight in the NCAA Tournament, including beating a terrific defensive (if not terrific offensive) team in Butler. Yes, I was convinced Butler was going to win.

I really want to credit UConn's defense for Butler's problems on offense, but they just kept missing shots that were totally make-able. Did they choke? That feels inconceivable. But something went horribly wrong at the worst moment. The jokes on Twitter during the game were brutal.

It's still an amazing run by Butler. And an even more amazing run by UConn. More later.
