Butler and Duke: David vs. Goliath

Monday will feature a David vs. Goliath battle in the NCAA championship. The Duke Blue Devils handled West Virginia 78-57 on Saturday, making over 50 percent of their 3-pointers with 20 assists on only six turnovers. Their victory was aided by West Virginia’s leading scorer Da’Sean Butler making an early exit due to injury and only shooting 2-for-8 on the night. The Butler Bulldogs only squeaked by Michigan St. with a 52-50 win and going 6-for-25 in the second half. The two schools’ programs couldn’t be more different. “Duke, the program with everything. Butler, the program with the nice doggie mascot,” writes ESPN columnist Pat Forde. Duke will be playing for its fourth title in 19 years while Butler will be playing for their first.
