Job once again being made to have a chance to play for the national championship butler's back in the final four after series -- close victories four wins coming by total thirteen points. Houses -- focus and get it done -- well. I think they're used to playing close games and you give a lot of credit to Brad Stevens is a guy who. Doesn't seem to waver and we say poise poise poise in -- smart Brad Stevens or two guys that all poise in the world. Close game or not they state even keel and I think that translates. To the players that you see on the floor and these guys have no problem. Playing in a close game and music. There's not much expectation this year for Butler the really hasn't been you know the funny thing was coming into the C edited the NC -- this year they said. Butler could be issues Butler. And really not act but. It's true we didn't expect this from Butler as we saw what they did last year they -- -- Gordon Hayward and -- up big time player. An NBA lottery picks so we didn't expect this from them this year but he seemed to do this team being every year and -- right back in the mix. And he got to give a lot of credit to Brad Stevens and just like last year and again a -- would -- -- -- him as a primary enough to take away the three ball from BC yeah. You know it's funny because if TCU was like a North Carolina Kentucky I'd be a little more concern. Because of the depth usually teams like Kentucky North Carolina -- they have little more depth. But believe me you're looking at 606 or 505 on five or six a six game. These are two teams that don't have a deep bench so. Who's gonna get worn out first I think they can pick up the pressure I think Brad Stevens. He watched that game by himself in the locker room -- in his office he watched that game. You that they're always gonna force TCU in the tougher three point shots at least contested three point shots. With the rotation. Rebound recover I mean these are all things. As simple as that sounds in basic minimum principles that's a Brett Stephens can be pretty like -- Richard Greece. Board for the final and you'll like Florida all over illustrator you talk about experience how much of that help and it's an obvious question here that. Butler almost won it all year ago they got guys like Matt Howard who were this close to -- his national time you know it it does helping you see that through this -- close games. They they have nothing to lose that that's that's key NBC used the same way. But Butler has a couple guys -- Mack Matt Howard who have been negative experience that they'd been at the top they felt what it feels like to lose. In the national championship game and that's something that wouldn't go to Butler I don't think you ever -- I don't think you go to Butler built. We're gonna play for a national championship but I don't think you you even consider that so they understand where they've been they know where they would like to go. I think they're just playing like they've got nothing to lose and that's key. And Matt Howard's a guy he's one of those guys Mark Madsen you know white guy and not just visited. The stature in the floppy hair and and the fundamentals yeah if it's not just that it's the fact that. He's gonna do what ever it takes blood sweat and tears to win. And any coaches any coach's dream and anybody who plays against them it's. This clip was brought to you by muscle now gets powerful protein drink evolved.
