Given a few hours, a little research and some objective perspective, you might be able to find several NCAA men's basketball championships that were at least close to equal, in terms of thrills, chills and gut-twisting tension, of the one played in Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday night.

That was a great game, played the way basketball was meant to be played. The tributes will roll in for a long time. Great coaching, an experienced sage versus a bright new face, but both with the same team concept. Outstanding efforts from energetic disciplined young student athletes.

The radio broadcast was outstanding with enlightening commentary from another experienced sage, John Thompson. One of the interesting facts brought out by the radio crew was that since the game was near the Butler campus, eight of the players had attended class the day of the National Championship Game. What a tribute to small liberal arts schools.

What a game!! What a team!! Gotta love Butler guards hands always measuring up the opponent on their man to man. The composure of both teams in the final 2 minutes (Butler O finding Howard for buckets, and Duke draining a jump shot) was compelling. Great no calls by the officials (Zhoubak getting tangled up, the tie-up with Mack, the back screen by Howard on the last for Hayword) so that the players decided this classic.
