Will the Clock Strike Midnight??by Jason Weisbecker
Cinderella has one more dance to go…
Will the slipper fit and will the Butler Bulldogs be able to cap off their improbable run tonight? Or will the Duke Blue Devils be just too much for Cinderella to handle?
As much as it pains me to say, I am going to have to go with the latter.. Duke had the easiest road to the finals of any #1 seed and they seem to have plenty left in the tank to finish off Butler and once again be on top of the college basketball world.
I would like nothing more than to see the Bulldogs pull off their biggest upset of the season, but it does not seem logical. The way that Duke shot the ball in their last game (dismantling West Virginia), they look like they are on a mission.
However, this is where the Bulldogs thrive. Their backs are up against the wall and once again they are asked to prove themselves. They could do it, but it will take flawless basketball. They have to rebound the heck out of the basketball, have little to know turnovers and utilize the 3-point shot. If they do all of these and the stars align, then the Butler Bulldogs will make history once again and be crowned college basketball National Champions.
My Prediction: The game is within 5 points at halftime, but Duke wins by 11.
Now excuse me, I have to go watch another riveting Tiger Woods press conference. When will this crap end?
And that’s my two cents….
