Brian Zoubek's defense and rebound really helped this one for Duke. Zoubek was a sought after recruit coming into Duke but didn't do much his freshman to junior year. Then his senior year he stepped up and just got tons of rebounds and played great as a role player. He's a classy guy, always in a good mood.
Horrible camera view when games happen in a Dome.
The Butler ALMOST Did it.
The Hayward/Stevens legacy doesn't end here
Feels bad that all everyone talked about was how that last shot almost went in. Looking back we had Kyle Singler and Jon Shyer, two unheard of guys these days, lead their team to champions
If the ball was shot maybe an inch or 2 lower and was able to hit the backboard cleanly and go in, we see this as not only the greatest underdog win for Butler in NCAA history, but arguably the greatest National Championship of all time. Gordon Hayward will become a much bigger face of Butler, and chances are Brad Stevens could possibly be staying as a college coach. If only the rim was generous, would we know 🤷♂️
What happened to Matt Howard?
To think a mid-major school in Butler was inches away from a national championship and a spot of immortality in college basketball history
And the game was played in the same city where Butler is located. Would have been truly legendary.
why couldn't the shot just go in
That's Brad Stephens and he's coaching Gordon Hayward
