NCAA 2011 Basketball Championship Game: Brad Stevens and the Butler Bulldogs Come Up Short Once Again

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Further From Home, But In The Same Position, Butler Plays For National Championship Tonight

Monday, April 4th, 2011

One year ago, the Butler Bulldogs were in this exact same spot. OK, maybe not exactly. Last year they played Duke in the national championship just a few miles down the road from their campus. Still, tonight, surprisingly, they'll play for the title again halfway across the country in Houston. I'll ...
