NCAA Championship Game: Butler v Duke
INDIANAPOLIS - APRIL 05: (L-R) Kyle Singler #12, Jon Scheyer #30, Brian Zoubek #55 and Nolan Smith #2 of the Duke Blue Devils celebrate after Scheyer drew a charging foul against Gordon Hayward #20 of the Butler Bulldogs during the 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 5, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

One of the great games in the Duke canon was the 2010 national championship which saw Duke beat Butler but just barely.

This game was unbelievably tense. Duke just couldn’t shake Butler as the Bulldogs, tenacious as their nickname, just kept coming.

What’s always amazed us in this game was how Brian Zoubek utterly dominated the last :30 seconds or so. He influenced almost everything.
