Underdog Butler To Meet Powerhouse Duke In Final

The NCAA tournament couldn't have written a better script.

All that's left is the final act.

It will be tiny upstart Butler, the hometown college that has never been on such a stage, taking on the blueblood Blue Devils of Duke, a school which already has three title banners hanging from the rafters at Cameron Indoor Stadium and has played in the final nine times before.

Forget for a moment about "Hoosiers," the sappy based-on-a-true-story movie that just happened to be filmed at Hinkle Fieldhouse, which the Bulldogs call home. Just appreciate the story for what it is: Two teams with plenty of veterans who each have overcome their own obstacles to reach Monday night's final in Indianapolis.

There aren't any one-and-done players here, and these are no flash-in-the-pan programs. Just a bunch of kids who share a love of the game competing for the biggest prize in college basketball.

Sixty-three teams have gone home. One more will join them.

And one will be left standing.
