Men’s NCAA Basketball: Final Four Coverage And Recap

There was fire in Indy for the Final Four. In the first game, Michigan State fell 52-50 to the Butler Bulldogs. In what was a competitive game all night long, it sure ended the same way.

Down by 4 pts, Michigan St.’s Raymar Morgan inbounded the ball to Korie Lucious with 6.1 secs left. Korie did not touch the ball until he got past half court and the clock skipped from 6.1 to 5.8 secs when he did. The referees reviewed the clockings and put the 5.8 secs back on the clock, but soon after that, Lucious was fouled with 2 secs left. In a game like this, of course, it is not an option to make both free throws, you have to make one and miss one. Looking for the offensive rebound, Korie made the 1st and while he missed the 2nd, he quickly went to the rim but Butler’s Gordon Hayward hovered over the ball as time expired.

Butler is moving on to their 1st championship match-up.

The game of the night that everyone was waiting for was West Virginia and Duke. Honestly, this was Duke’s best game all season.

Duke dominated consistently on both ends of the floor and especially behind the 3 pt line. A more serious time came in the 9 minute mark of the 2nd half when WVU guard Da’Sean Butler suffered a ACL injury and left the game in excruciating agony.

With their floor general out, WVU’s heads were not in the game and they were in a 15-pt deficit with no way to make a comeback. Duke cruised pass WVU 78-57.

Duke and Butler will play for the title on Monday.
