The Dream of the Perfect Bracket Dies

Well, I knew it would happen at some point, and I should have known better than to bet against Brad Stevens.  Sixth seeded Butler beats eleventh seeded Bucknell 68-56.  Bucknell really needed all-conference Center Mike Muscala to have a big game in order to have a chance to win this one; however, 9 points and 10 rebounds on 4-17 shooting is not going to be enough to beat Butler.  Four Butler players registered double figured, led by Rotnei Clarke with 17, and Andrew Smith had 14 points and 16 rebounds.  Butler will take on the winner of Marquette and Davidson who play in about 20 minutes from the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.
