TheOpenThread: UConn (31-9) vs. Butler (28-9) - NCAA National Championship Game

Houston_medium

Here we go.

I don't believe in destiny and fate. But I do believe in Kemba Walker. Forty twisting, turning games into this incredible season, UConn is 40 minutes away from completing perhaps the most glorious run in the history of college basketball. In their way is a damn freakin good Butler squad that's back to finish the business they began 364 days ago.

The Bulldogs have won 14 straight; the Huskies 10 straight. Someone's magic is going to run out tonight. I hope it's them.

As if you need to be told, tonight's game tips at 9:23 p.m., and you can see it on CBS. This is your OpenThread, I will be around for all the festivities this evening (as I believe Justin will also be, while Porter is lucky enough to be at Reliant Stadium.)

And here is your official UConnBlog prediction: UConn 77, Butler 74

Strap in, folks. Let's go Huskies.
