A Great Article About Butler And The 2010 Title Game With Duke

This is really a solid bit of work. We'd call it a must-read.

The Indianapolis Star has a tremendous article up on Butler's magnificent run to the 2010 national championship game with Duke.

Our favorite part: Ronald Nored said this: "There was no breaking Duke. We could go on a run, we could make a couple of shots, we could lock them up on a couple of possessions, and Duke did the exact same thing."

To which Avery Juke said: "It was like playing ourselves."

That's a pretty good description of the game, as good as we've ever heard. Both teams were magnificent but there's only room for one name on a trophy.
