UConn’s Beautiful Defense Stifles Butler in National Championship

The clean swishes were rare and the iron clanged loudly too many times, but don’t let anyone tell you that the national championship game was ugly. The 41 combined points in the first half may have been the fewest points in a half in a championship game since 1946, but it was far from ugly. [...]
