Yeah I mean that first game wasn't went for the time cap -- -- you know one man's trash is another man should you gotta do what you gotta do -- about game two there were some moments for -- at -- very positive wasn't as efficient and as good as I've seen them a long long time that's why pick in the win a national -- -- right. You always insightful. Coming up live box or not -- -- basketball writer -- -- first let's recap again. Butler gave it to -- semi final looking to continue to magical run to Nancy AA title the guys who may be taking on Michigan eight Indianapolis. No team has won a championship in their home states market Johnson you LA it was the -- in San Diego in 1975. -- aren't a right to play for national championship we'll look Venus spartans. If you do fit into bottles sports magical five C important pay what ninety point nine rebound Sheldon that was -- -- like rams finished fourteen points. The spartans committed six. And turn over his only shot 56%. From the line rolls over fourteen. What is their -- on the removing all the national championship game. I didn't think fifteenth 49 was a great way to approach this game. And had never would have dreamed we would've won if we shot fifteen for 49 but. Our guys did a great job defending in the last thirty minutes of the games. Really locked on made it difficult I think Michigan State that's when he won its ten minute -- nine minute mark of the first half and and after that scored. August 29 so guys are really really dug in we had a lot of guys that add to it and did a great job and you know. This team in this program's been built on guys ready ready to to come in and contribute to the good of the team. Couldn't find a way to win it and I think that was the lack of productivity we had his remark was in foul trouble and we had a couple of guys -- foul trouble the first half but. But. This team played meaning -- -- vote is. Hard under the circumstance is we are put in as any team I've ever coach years. Okay market in the second half butler went over ten minutes without a bucket managed to win how to get a dot. Well obviously Michigan State didn't do much better at that they were maybe three points five points in that same stretch. And and -- give butler a lot of credit for dead their defense were sound but but again the Michigan State team their -- -- to kind of grounded out they don't have. An overabundance of of of guys who can score and create your own chat so. They found themselves in and and in the tough situation against a tough half court defense of butler -- -- not a thing of beauty in the -- done it by turn over the foul trouble but how much credit gigabyte for electric -- Brett -- coach and outstanding game plan he knows this team again they have difficulty creating their own shaft off the dribble. They pressured up tremendously made him have to put the basketball on the floor. Butler played this is gonna help deep into any team you'll find in the country and they wanted to look at the game they wanted to be an ugly game. They wanted to to keep score down this is you know again at -- time capsule tablet game but as the kind of game butler but -- the plate. The state not one single -- -- point. Please read the hands above the telling what you think the efficient team like in the second at the officials call things a lot -- in the first. Maybe they did but I -- I never really elected officials were having a major major impact on this game you know I thought it was a pretty well. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The way they play together the deep it's a specially half court defense that way they control the typical of the game you know it -- in -- situation with the and I got to get blown out of a lot of games to going to be a position Nguyen gained at the end. And they've got guys in and -- -- -- -- Mac and in Hayward these guys who make plays when they need to make plays at the office -- -- the floor and you gotta expect it'll. Okay let's move on the second semi final feature West Virginia did not -- Bob Huggins team missing their starting point guard truck Bryant who broke his foot two weeks ago they could use them because duke rolled to a W 857 -- -- things in the second half. John -- look at doubles with twenty points. Kyle -- at what you want about your shot merely. 41% from the floor outrebounded by the -- Like his bed facing West Virginia which just twelve points. One had a chance to win their first national championship in 2001. In our our team played really well ultimately. -- our defense was outstanding in our care for the ball. Was excellent to good morning assists and only six turnovers and these guys had twelve assists and no turnovers and an all three of our perimeter guys had outstanding shooting games and -- we did a really good team and and we thought we played an outstanding game. They played. They played really really well and I don't know I watched a lot of tape Clemson play that well. And we didn't play very well you know and that happens. Of them August has breakdown of the game duke look at it from the out they -- the paint -- ballot in this. Did indeed abated in that intercepted and that that the USQ do it through yes it would everywhere to call Cingular and Sharon Smith. They carried this basketball team -- the the guys are have a lot of great individual talent but this is one of those rare cases with a kind of put together. For an entire basketball game and Andy as a -- he was a monster and inside they get just the right kind of contributions from the plant leaves off the bench Lance Thomas of the big did what he does best. The -- a rebound. It was a total team effort and the thing that impressed me about do this plan just to such great team basketball the chemistry and everything's just coming to get -- right time let's focus on one of those -- guys and fans like to cheer against John Shire occasionally a 23 point it seems like he's found his stroke. As the second half of the season has progressed at your gets done cherries thinking you know he's a lovable guy and JJ -- have an -- against coming didn't you get if he's he's a terrific basketball or 65. Moved to the point guard position is -- a tremendous job but in this team. And he has a lights out jump shooter did a great job using the public on occasion to create some more space from so. He does a great job it about to just control of the tip was that -- push to try and do things that. Are not within the realm of possibilities for him. And limited sometimes athletically. But he plays a smart basketball game in this Duke Team is really played well since coast case for the moment let's go back to Brian he'll make as you mentioned he -- filled up that not a dominant big man but he does a little head to New Jersey -- -- a new New York Tri-State area right Robert is big big New Jersey kid I mean. You know. He's a guy looking at his play he's a senior last year's united press watch him play but within that that the kind of pride in the context it would do want to do. As a team to be success so he did has been its depth tremendously all during a -- and specialists pass game. He dominated the inside I'm not talk about scored a lot of points but challenging shots. Make it a nuisance of themselves being in great position defensively. And going to get the basketball he did that. At this entire tournament I've become impressed with what he has done at the role player duke as we alluded to West Virginia did not have taught Bryant how much they miss him bottom line well I mean they may be a little bit more pressured John -- -- truck. Brian has -- some good guy who's going to dominate the score for this team the -- do that a little bit would be that depression maybe take some of the pressure for Joe Muslim but. You know sit winning by 21 points maybe do wins by Taylor right -- they still win this game took -- out of the mix of major difference in the outcome. Okay. For more on this game let's bring in fox sports dot com's senior basketball writer Jeff Goodman he joins us from Lucas Oil Stadium. Indeed get what not but the big picture what does butler's weighed in about the need to gain safe to say we have real parity now college basketball. The other there's no question I mean you look at its butler team and a mobile overpowering. They did beat Michigan data team without. Kalin Lucas -- that's -- -- their point guard for. Barely feed them. You know they are strictly -- their -- routine they'd get fan. As sure about factor in all five in -- -- look forward -- 160 points but but they're not all powerful they're all there are. They've they've they've kind of help them out on defense and on the fact that Gordon it would obviously had a great game itself would not play well -- -- out there and pieces fit together they're disciplined and what you're right they're not a big time you know power outs with a lot of NBA -- -- back. You'll regatta and actually really player in the league will record it was servers parity in college basketball. As evidenced by both teams. That wants. Boller played most of the second half of the game without Shelton MacKey was out with a leg injury if he's not a 100% on Monday. What will that mean for the bulldogs. You know lock up been told that it was your scripts. And I was the only reason monarch who was held out of a good portion of the second half. I think UB five I mean not been reads your contrary it will certainly know more. On the opposite but I on what I've been told. By the coach and doubtful ball where Paula was from scratch back just couldn't get back out here so -- look very into the game but I think he'll be fun. So that's good news -- butler about duke having a chance to play forts -- national championship. What stands out you the most about this year's day. Just that they've got this -- you know I mean what some in the -- season again it would. It was at that -- the big to do you remember you know they had lots Gerald Anderson -- lot Elliot Williams who transferred. Commitment to be quotes it is Mother's Day. Anderson what the -- Padilla and here I am really bad child similar John's daughter and that was signaled that hadn't proven himself at that point. You know he failed -- experiment last year the point guard spot. It move overall football people lives sort once again the -- -- Goldsmith principally to yelled Anderson. Those guys that I combined for sixty reports. Probably the best effort but the trio. 62 win against Carolina. The -- earlier in the year. Why aren't you back. And rebalance. Two aggregate I mean it do a pretty good job of the port to get along. West Virginia team. You know again you're not overpowering. Which is secure solid team and they're curious wore a lot of dominant teams this year. You were told me to do -- will be the championship game at the beginning of the year. -- -- I'll probably do a lot the other problem was that I -- -- -- -- -- and when I streak in it that you an adjective and now one of those in Europeans can accept cabinet some Monday night. Jeff thanks very much for the insights when we come back markets will preview Monday night's national championship game between butler do. Hope there's Derek rolls on after this. Former British Sparage. You can't outlook monkey people. Black and -- pulled away for a educated guess what is it. Then there's the outrageously hot why this is how she becomes. I think Castro's -- and so yeah I did too busy login message boards trying to. Welcome back to -- -- presented by H&R block get it right Brian -- Marcus Johnson revealed. It began in October would midnight madness. -- the first. Monday in April the national championship game butler -- young duke. Let's talk about all the themes here and some people might be overlooking the back of butler was right in the pre season top ten we know this -- plays hard how much talent the butler. -- -- Got a lot of talent I mean it when you look at this team Matt Howard was a conference player of the year in the Horizon League last year Gordon haven one of this year. The got a tremendous. You and and that now and then mentioning how the victims second half in the last volume of the size that has -- tremendous tremendous basketball. You know overall does -- very solid very smart basketball team you know that that really deep well. You're not really began to hit the big guy comes off the bench but would just deep enough to give you problems. And they're -- -- defense butler holding all a lot of their opponents in this journey under a 2.2 game. Can they do it again with -- national average of on the lot going to be tough against duke duke has a lot of off bits of weaponry as witness this -- game -- some of finalists will be played against the West Virginia that Prius boys. They do a terrific job hunting in the can for their shots -- to what -- supposed to do setting screens freeing them up. Going to be -- difficult I think -- but it's gonna have to be in a position where they're gonna need not only Haywood score twenty to 25 points but how it's got to be double figures show -- Mac has got to be held. Healthy -- and fifteen to twenty points a game and so expect a guy -- bands and a some medicine at the command NORAD. And -- close to double figures -- I think the game's gonna be won enough for six or seven -- the next nose in butler trying to defend duke in the form there and a three point attack. Well you butler. We will be much of a problem because -- -- -- -- eleventh time van Zandt NORAD. You know the place double Mac -- the -- -- how much -- -- and it shouldn't be a major problem based on on on the cramping that would do in the course of mark where he should be okay come Monday night so of the three guards do a pretty good job chase them -- the report man in terms of -- And Smith bass -- at eight. He's gonna be the -- -- probably the X they got back she built a smaller players do you -- -- it would Gordon Hayward do you take the energetic he would opposite game to put him on Sigler. That if things have Bret Stephens approaches let's focus now duke game plan how to try to slowdown Gordon Hayward hey it's a little football to the floor he -- indeed and he is quickly becoming when my favorite players and college basketball because I love guys his second -- Baltic to the three point jet. And that's not a rated take -- into the basket now the big question for coach K. You know do you put. Singled out dancing as has done a tremendous job because they shot butler and -- West Virginia mysterious -- Baylor. He is -- those guys that now but do you want his office to suffer but evidence is Gordon -- all around the floor. Or do you as a Lance Thomas who that's his role he's -- he's a Big -- kid rebounded -- that's a player I think he has the quick they would they would on outside. So that's that's kind of the situation goes tape by president but you will either -- messed -- -- get together that's a terrific Mexican magnet Bret Stephens 33 years old coach -- going after national championship -- before how much of that to -- matter come game time the -- and periods -- 33 years old was dead is that he's a terrific -- -- it's gonna matter. Goes it's been there's so many Tass report and again you travels on that that that kind of duke hater and bandwagon at the start of the season didn't Watson holed up this year this year. Cut a -- to do but wants to turn and it started watching this team play and then you -- -- of -- gimmick coach can you realize. Are terrific of a coaching -- I think that that experts will help him but again it's Indianapolis -- home town. I think -- of those things come out offs at each other so your foreshadowing and a couple different directions prediction on who's going to win the national title and a lot. They do because again I think one thing but it likes to do they liked that control the pace of the game duke. Is a good enough offers a team there at the cost at that but the eye of do the plot leaves the -- Thomas the way these got a plan right now the gold long. With that three permit aghast if Sharon -- I think will be too much to handle Duca plante at the top of their game Aaron on all cylinders they're not to be stopped duke with the national championship. Not during -- -- -- -- return to do so who put that sell -- latest truly strawberry could lead into the regular in my opinion is that it's always good to see you Vargas. That's it for this edition of hoaxes that are presented by H&R block. Get it right for market some -- enjoy the national championship game everybody.
